Oil prices gained on Tuesday on hopes that OPEC+ will maintain its output cuts for at least three months, while sentiment was boosted by news of another promising COVID-19 vaccine.

Brent crude futures for January gained 0.4%, or 16 cents, at $43.98 per barrel. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude for December contract rose 0.3%, or 13 cents, at $41.47 per barrel.

OPEC and its allies including Russia is set to meet Tuesday on an official ministerial committee meeting to assess the need for changes in production quotas.
