Before you do anything drastic, just first off avoid abrasives. Try first with whatever car wax you have on hand and a clean soft cloth and vigorously buff and wax the scratches. Buff em up several times
Then wait a while until the wax "does it's 'thing" and re-evaluate.
Hate to say this I find Scratch=X to be snake oil

It worked wonders for me
I agree. My truck is black and I have had to use ScratchX a few times already. It will get the job done on smaller scratches like that. Just be patient, do it by hand, and be prepared to apply it 2-3 times in order for it to really kick in.

I had a couple of scratches like that on my new truck and ScratchX worked on them.
