NEW YORK, Nov 1 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures rose nearly 1
percent on Thursday as a government report showing that crude
oil inventories fell last week and positive economic data
combined to support oil prices.
U.S. December rose 85 cents, or 0.99 percent, to
settle at $87.09 a barrel, having traded from $85.92 to $87.42.
