NEW YORK, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices added 82 cents Tuesday to hit $95.19 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Light, sweet West Texas Intermediate crude is finding support from continued port closures in Libya and supply disruptions from South Sudan.

Gasoline added 1.27 cents to reach $2.6331 a gallon.

Home heating oil dropped 0.37 cents to settle at $3.02 a gallon.

Natural gas gained 9 cents to hit $4.42 per million British thermal units.

The national average price of unleaded regular gasoline dropped to $3.279 per gallon from Monday's $3.284, the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report said.
