U.S. crude-oil futures rose Thursday, aiming for a fourth consecutive day of gains on calmer concerns about the tapering of monetary stimulus by the Federal Reserve.

Crude for August delivery rose 46 cents, or 0.5%, to $95.96 a barrel in electronic trade.

On Wednesday, the contract closed higher by 18 cents at $95.50 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, with oil “drawing support from a 1% advance in the S&P 500 on expectations that a downward revision to U.S. [first-quarter gross domestic product] might delay Fed plans to reduce asset purchases,” Citi Futures analyst Tim Evans told clients.

U.S. equities surged after the Commerce Department said first-quarter economic growth expanded by 1.8%, which was not as strong as its previous estimate of 2.4%.

I agree with the greed. You have made enough money so time to relax and give consumers a break. Thank you.

The highest inventories since 1981 are simply ignored.
If this were any other commodity - like gold, prices would have dropped like a rock.

Not good. There is no reason for it. The economy is not growing.

Maybe the speculators didn't want to miss out on the "cash cow" summer pricing opportunity?

The article continues:

The report put into question the possible timing of a slowdown in bond purchases by the central bank. The S&P 500 Index SPX +0.96% rose 15 points, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +1.02% tacked on 150 points.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said last week the central bank may taper the pace of its bond purchases, currently set at $85 billion a month, as early as this year if the economy continues to improve in line with its forecasts.

Energy investors on Thursday will get a look at a report on U.S. consumer spending in May, which should provide insight on growth in the second quarter. Economists polled by MarketWatch expect consumer spending to rise 0.3%, with incomes rising a slightly lesser 0.2% in May.
