Oil prices reversed earlier losses to stand slightly higher on Tuesday as broad hopes for a demand recovery persisted despite new outbreaks of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus prompting fresh mobility curbs worldwide.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 24 cents, or 0.3%, to $73.15 a barrel, following a 1.5% loss on Monday.
