HOUSTON (ICIS)--The US September mixed xylene (MX) contract was confirmed today to have settled at $4.25/gal, for a gain of 33 cents/gal from August, according to trade sources.

The September MX contract, which was said to have settled last week, was up alongside the recent surge in aromatics spot prices ahead of turnarounds scheduled for the next two months.

The September MX contract settlement also followed the 23 cent/gal increase in the September benzene contract settlement last week.
