The American Petroleum Institute reported that crude supplies jumped by 6.3 million barrels for the week ended Nov. 6, according to sources late Tuesday. A Platts survey of analysts forecasted an increase of 500,000 barrels. Following the data, December crude was at $43.63 a barrel in electronic trading, down from the $44.21 settlement on Nymex. The more closely watched EIA report is due Thursday, a day late because of Wednesday’s Veterans Day holiday.
