WASHINGTON, June 13 (UPI) -- U.S. crude oil inventories rose by 2.5 million barrels to 393.8 million barrels last week, the Energy Information Administration said.

The agency, in a report released Wednesday, said supplies of distillate fuels, which include home heating oil, fell by 1.2 million barrels to 122.1 million barrels. Inventories of distillate fuels are in the lower half of the average range for this time of year, the agency said.
