NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil is lower Wednesday, after the government reported that supplies rose last week, as analysts expected.

Gasoline pump prices continued to climb, rising to a national average of $3.811 per gallon.

Benchmark crude fell by 61 cents to $106.10 per barrel in New York. Brent crude, used to price oil imported by U.S. refineries, fell 6 cents to $126.16 per barrel in London.

The Energy Department said that supplies increased by 1.8 million barrels last week. Gasoline supplies fell by 1.4 million barrels as refineries sold off remaining stockpiles of winter gasoline blends. Supply levels were near analysts’ estimates.

The government also says energy demand remains weak. Demand dropped 5.4 percent for oil and 7.2 percent for gasoline compared with the same week last year.
