U.S. crude settles higher after choppy trading
NEW YORK Jan 30 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures edged up in choppy trading on Wednesday, receiving support from improved euro zone economic sentiment and data showing U.S. refined products stocks fell last week. Rising crude oil inventories and weak U.S. economic growth figures limited gains.
