U.S. crude ends slightly lower as oil inventories rise

NEW YORK, Jan 9 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures edged lower on Wednesday in choppy trading as rising oil inventories and increasing domestic crude oil production applied pressure and countered any lift from equities prices boosted by a better-than-expected outlook from aluminum producer Alcoa.

U.S. February crude fell 5 cents, or 0.05 percent, to settle at $93.10 a barrel, having traded from $92.68 to $93.65. (Reporting by Robert Gibbons; editing by John Wallace)
