Oil price above $102 after US inventories fall

The Associated Press

The price of oil rose above $102 per barrel Thursday after a U.S. inventories report showed a larger-than-expected drop in crude oil supplies.

Benchmark U.S. crude for August delivery was up 85 cents at $102.05 a barrel at 0855 GMT in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract added $1.24 to $101.20 on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said U.S. crude oil inventories fell by 7.5 million barrels to 375 million barrels in the week of July 11. The fall was bigger than expected. Analysts had forecast a drop of 3 million barrels, according to a survey by Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill Cos.

Last month, supply concerns caused by conflicts in Iraq jacked up the price of oil to above $107 per barrel. But the price drifted lower as Iraqi insurgents failed to advance and oil exports remained unaffected. Libya's comeback to the oil market also pushed the oil price down.

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, gained 30 cents to $107.47 on the ICE exchange in London.

In other Nymex trading:

— Wholesale gasoline was steady at $2.855 a gallon.

— Natural gas dropped 2.4 cents to $4.095 per 1,000 cubic feet.
