Oil rises on declining inventories and weaker dollar

LONDON (Reuters) -Oil prices edged higher on Thursday, supported by a sharp decline in U.S. crude stocks and a weaker dollar, though gains were capped by an OPEC+ decision to stick to its policy of gradually increasing output. Brent crude was up 45 cents, or 0.6%, at $72.04 a barrel by 1101 GMT and West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose 39 cents, or 0.6%, to $68.98. Oil refineries in Louisiana could take weeks to restart.
