    Oil prices struggle to hold five-month high amid pandemic worries

    Oil prices were unchanged on Thursday, struggling to hold onto five-month highs reached in the previous session, as fuel demand worries caused by a second wave of coronavirus infections outweighed declines in the U.S. dollar. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude <CLc1> futures were down 3 cents, or 0.1%, at $42.16 a barrel at 0148 GMT, while Brent crude <LCOc1> futures rose 6 cents to $45.23. The two benchmark contracts rose more than 1% on Wednesday to their highest since March 6, completing a four-day rally, after the Energy Information Administration reported a much bigger than expected drop in U.S. crude stockpiles.
