As many as 20 hostages, including several Americans, reportedly have escaped their captors at an Algerian gas pumping station taken over by Islamic militants. Algeria's government was in talks throughout the night with the U.S. and France over whether they could help against the militants. Crude oil pushes moderately higher: Brent +0.5% to $110.28, WTI +0.5% to $94.75.
