Crude drifts away from the worst day in 2 weeks

On Thursday, crude added in European trade, just one day after ts biggest loss in two weeks when data showed a shocking build in American crude stockpiles.

July delivery US West Texas Intermediate crude futures hit $46.03 a barrel, rising 0.7%. On Wednesday, the contract concluded down more than 5%, having reached its lowest since May 9 at $45.65.

August delivery Brent futures gained 39 cents in London, showing $48.45 a barrel. During the previous trading session the global benchmark reached $47.96, a value not observed since May 5.
