Oil futures built on this month's gains, even as traders hopes for a rebound in summer gasoline demand clash with data showing fuel consumption slowed down last week. For the session, August-dated West Intermediate (WTI) crude gained 84 cents, or 1%, to settle at $81.74 per barrel.

Gold futures also recovered from back-to-back losses, with August-dated gold last seen 1% higher at $2,335.30 an ounce. A softening dollar helped bullion bounce today, as did anticipation for tomorrow's inflation report.
