Oil futures hit three-year high

Oil futures jumped on Wednesday, setting prices for the U.S. benchmark up for their highest finish in more than three years after unconfirmed reports that Saudi Arabia has intercepted a missile over Riyadh.
The news appeared to surface shortly after a U.S. government report revealed a bigger-than-expected weekly rise in domestic crude supplies. 
May West Texas Intermediate crude rose $1.58, or 2.4%, to $67.09 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. 
June Brent crude added $1.56, or 2.2%, to $72.60 a barrel.
