U.S. crude settles slightly higher after seesaw session

NEW YORK, Jan 18 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures edged up on Friday in choppy trading as geopolitical threats to supply and a possible deal to temporarily lift the U.S. debt ceiling supported prices, while a stronger dollar and weak consumer sentiment data limited gains.

U.S. crude rose 7 cents, or 0.07 percent, to settle at $95.56 a barrel, having traded from $94.91 to $95.67.

For the week, U.S. crude rose $2, or 2.1 percent. (Reporting by Robert Gibbons; Editing by Gerald E. McCormick)
