New York oil prices pushed higher Wednesday even as the weekly US stockpiles report showed crude stores at their highest level in 31 years.
New York's main contract, West Texas Intermediate crude for June delivery, added one dollar even per barrel to finish at $96.62.
In London, Brent North Sea oil for June was little changed, giving up six cents to $104.34 per barrel.
Analysts had expected a much larger rise in the US commercial crude stocks than the 200,000 barrel increase that came in.
