Oil prices were up early on Tuesday morning amid reports that Saudi Arabia would be comfortable letting oil prices rise above $80 a barrel and OPEC may not be rushing into further production boost commitments after the one they agreed upon in June.

At 08:02 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, WTI Crude was up 0.80 percent at $69.54, while Brent Crude was trading up 0.79 percent at $78.71.
