 Oil prices climbed on Monday, despite weaker demand expectations, as concerns about oil supply heading into winter mount. Brent crude futures settled at $94.00 a barrel, up $1.16, or 1.3%. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude settled at $87.78, up 99 cents, or 1.1%.

The latest data from the US Department of Energy shows that US emergency oil stocks have fallen to their lowest level since October 1984, down 8.4 million barrels to 434.1 million barrels in the week ended Sept. 9.
