Oil prices surged as much as four percent after the latest report on U.S. crude stockpiles, CNBC reported.

The U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures rocketed above $47 a barrel after governmental data showed a big drop in U.S. crude inventories.


Gasoline demand also recovered.

West Texas Intermediate is on track for its best day since OPEC agreed to cut its output.
