Prices Rise Over 4% As Inventory Levels Increase

Today, oil prices continue to rise over 4% despite an unexpected crude inventory hike. Investors are buying the dip, capitalizing on low prices in the hopes that prices will continue their march higher over the next few months.

Oil price volatility continues this week, with huge up-and-down movements for oil prices each day. Yesterday, oil prices once again plummeted, approaching Tuesday’s low closing level.
