MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Oil prices climbed Friday after the US dollar index dipped by 0.07 percent to 94.59 points, according to market values.

As of Friday morning, prices of crude oil Brent futures rose 1.48 percent to $45.19 per barrel. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil futures gained 1.53 percent, trading at $43.84 per barrel.
