NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- Crude oil prices rose slightly Friday on the New York Mercantile Exchange, continuing a monthlong trend toward higher prices.

The U.S. drop, prompted by the U.S. Federal Reserve's decision to buy U.S. Treasuries Wednesday, put further upward pressure on oil prices.

Prices Friday reached $51.22 per barrel, up 19 cents. Heating oil prices rose 0.0349 cents to $1.3834 per gallon. Reformulated blendstock gasoline rose 0.0261 cents to $1.457 per gallon. Natural gas prices fell 0.082 cents to $4.227 per million British thermal units.

At the pump, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $1.942 Friday, up from Thursday's $1.933 a gallon, AAA said.
