TREASURIES-U.S. bond yields rise with oil before auctions

* Benchmark yields hit highest level since Sept 2014
    * Oil futures reach 18-month peak on deal to cut output
    * U.S. to sell $24 bln 3-year notes, $20 bln 10-year notes

    NEW YORK, Dec 12 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields rose on
Monday, with benchmark yields hitting their highest since
September 2014 as a jump in oil prices stoked inflation bets
ahead of auctions of three-year and 10-year U.S. government
    Oil futures gained as much as 6.5 percent to an
18-month high after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting
Countries and other major producers reached their first
agreement since 2001 to pare output in a bid to deal with global
oversupply and to boost prices. 
    A rebound in crude prices reinforced the notion that U.S.
inflation is the rise with expectations of fiscal stimulus from
the Trump administration.
    Bets on a surge in government borrowing as a result of
possible sharp tax cuts and heavy federal spending have been
behind the Treasuries selloff since the Nov. 8 U.S. election.
    The U.S. Treasury Department will sell $24 billion
three-year notes at 11:30 a.m. (1630 GMT) and $20
billion in 10-year notes at 1 p.m. (1800 GMT).
    The Treasuries supply comes before a widely expected
quarter-point interest rate increase from the Federal Reserve,
which will hold a two-day policy meeting on Tuesday and
    The yield on 10-year Treasury notes was last up
more than 4 basis points at 2.510 percent. Earlier Monday, it
struck 2.528 percent, which was the highest since Sept. 29,
2014, according to Reuters data.
