U.S. crude ends higher, refineries restarting after Sandy
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures edged higher on Tuesday in light-volume trading, as the return of some refineries shut by Hurricane Sandy pointed to better demand for oil than was feared as the storm approached.
U.S. December crude rose 14 cents, or 0.16 percent, to settle at $85.68 a barrel, having traded from $85.10 to $86.24.
