The light sweet crude for April delivery gained $1.65 to $103.07 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude was up $1.56 to $116.46 a barrel on the ICE futures exchange in London.

Crude oil prices have increased 13 percent since the beginning of the year, following continued unrest in some Arab nations.
