Oil prices ended weak on Tuesday as lack of clarity from the OPEC+ meeting kept markets nervous.
There was no consensus yet among OPEC+ producers. The group has been considering extending existing cuts of about 8% of global demand into the first months of 2021. Russia, meanwhile, backs a gradual increase.
Meanwhile, industry data from the American Petroleum Institute showed U.S. crude inventories rose by 4.1 million barrels last week, compared with analysts' expectations in a Reuters poll for a draw of 2.4 million barrels and weighed on prices.
Domestic crude ended lower on Tuesday, tracking global weakness.
