Crude ends lower as oil inventories rise

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. crude oil futures fell Wednesday after two straight sessions of gains, pressured by a government report showing crude stocks rose more than expected last week in the United States.

U.S. crude futures fell $1.53, or 1.47 percent, to settle at $102.67 a barrel, having traded from $102.19 to $104.51.
