Crude Rises First Day in Seven; Goldman Says Decline Unwarranted

May 20, 2012

Oil for June delivery rose as much as 49 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $91.97 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, and was at $91.93 at 11:36 a.m. Sydney time. Prices have fallen the past six days and are down 12 percent this month.
