Oil prices climb near $108 per barrel


By CHRIS KAHN AP Energy Writer


are climbing near $108 per bar- rel as optimism grows about a strengthening global economy. A private survey of the U.S. homebuilding industry on March 19 found that companies are in- creasingly hopeful that home sales will rise in coming months. Inter- national Monetary Fund Manag- ing Director Christine Lagarde also said over the weekend that the global economy has “stepped back from the brink.” The rise in oil also follows last


week’s rally on Wall Street. Benchmark U.S. crude added


56 cents to $107.62 per barrel in New York while Brent crude fell by 17 cents to $125.63 per barrel in London. Meanwhile, retail gasoline in-


creased more than a penny over the weekend to $3.842 per gallon.
