Production Concerns Send Oil Higher

Oil strung on another daily win as investors fretted over the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) ineffective efforts to lift production. Discussions over more U.S. restrictions on fossil fuels also sent prices higher. August-dated crude added $1.62, or 1.6%, to finish at $104.22 per barrel for the day. 

More weakness in the U.S. dollar sent gold prices higher, and though a rise in Treasury yields did put some weight on the commodity, it managed to log another settlement atop the key $1,700 per ounce level. August-dated gold added 50 cents, or 0.1%, to close at $1,710.70 an ounce.
