August West Texas Intermediate oil rose 83 cents, or 2.1%, to settle at $40.65 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That was the highest finish for a front-month contract since March 6, according to FactSet data. There will be no regular trading for Nymex oil futures Friday because of the Independence Day holiday. Prices were up 5% from last Friday's settlement. Source: Marketwatch
