Baker Hughes reports sixth-weekly U.S. oil-rig climb in seven weeks

Oil futures hold onto gains after data from Baker Hughes revealed a weekly climb in the number of active U.S. rigs drilling for oil–the sixth-weekly climb in seven weeks. The active U.S. oil-rig count rose 6 to 357 as of Friday. The total U.S. rig count climbed by 7 to 447.
