Comment: Oil prices were steady on Tuesday, holding around one-week highs after jumping over 3% the previous session as investors tempered expectations of an early return of oil exporter Iran to international crude markets. Still, the global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is patchy, showing a mixed outlook for oil demand. Parts of Europe and the United States are recording fewer infections and deaths, prompting governments to ease restrictions, but in other areas such as India - the world's third-biggest oil importer - rates are still high.
