Oil prices climbed for the first-time in three-days on Wednesday, but rising supply and fears over the outlook for demand amid the US-China trade war kept pressure on the market. Brent crude futures had gained 36 cents, or 0.5%, to $76.27 a barrel by 0110 GMT. They fell 1.8% on Tuesday, at one point touching their lowest since August 24 at $75.09 a barrel.
