U.S. crude settles higher as gasoline surges
NEW YORK Feb 14 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures rose on Thursday as gasoline futures jumped more than 2 percent, pushing the oil futures complex higher and offsetting any pressure from fresh concerns about the euro zone economy.
U.S. March crude rose 30 cents, or 0.31 percent, to settle at $97.31 a barrel, having traded from $96.77 to $97.71. (Reporting by Robert Gibbons; Editing by Gerald E. McCormick)
