U.S. crude oil production decreased slightly during the week ending March 20, U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Wednesday.

According to the EIA, U.S. crude oil production averaged 13.0 million barrels per day (b/d) last week, down by 100,000 b/d from the previous week and up by about 900,000 b/d year-on-year.

Oil prices extended gains on Wednesday as investors are hopeful the United States would approve a massive economic aid package amid the coronavirus fallout.
