    Black Gold Prices Rise on Middle East Concerns

    Oil futures surged Thursday, as rising tensions and shipping threats in the Middle East offset the recent increase in UI.S. crude and fuel inventories. For the session, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude for the now most-active front-month March contract added 65 cents, or 1%, to finish at $72.09 per barrel.

    Gold futures fell once again, pressured by today's inflation data that boosted the greenback and bond yields. In response, February-dated gold lost $8.60, or 0.4%, to close at $2,019.20 per ounce.
