Oil edges higher; natural gas rallies nearly 4%

Crude-oil futures ended a choppy Thursday 10 cents higher, gathering some strength from a weaker dollar and a rally for other commodities after the day's macroeconomic news painted a still-worrying picture of the U.S. economy. Crude for June delivery /quotes/comstock,CLM11 -0.35% rose 0.1% to $112.86 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. June natural gas /quotes/comstock/,NGM11 -0.04% rallied 3.7% to settle at $4.57 per million British thermal units after an inventories report showed a smaller-than-expected addition to supplies.
