Oil prices steadied on Thursday as indications that OPEC+ might cut output were tempered by a stronger dollar and weak economic outlook.
Brent crude futures for November edged up 26 cents, or 0.3%, to $89.58 a barrel by 1354 GMT. The more active December contract eased 13 cents, or 0.2%, to $87.92.
U.S. crude futures for November eased by 8 cents, or 0.1%, to $82.07.
Leading members of OPEC+ have begun discussions about an oil output cut when they meet on Oct. 5, two sources from the producer group told Reuters.
