Oil prices for April delivery were trading up 52 cents to $82.63 a barrel. Its high for the session was $82.83. The IEA said Friday that Asian countries, particularly China, were responsible for the increase in demand. The agency said oil demand would average 86.6 million barrels a day this year, or 1.6 million barrels a day more than last year, the Associated Press reports. The IEA's previous report last month estimated daily demand in 2010 of 86.5 million barrels.
