Oil futures down slightly

Oil prices were little changed on Thursday, with Brent crude trading at almost $85 a barrel, buoyed by expectations that a strong economic recovery will boost demand, but prices were pressured by rising U.S. inventories and fears of aggressive U.S. interest rate hikes.
 
Brent crude futures fell $0.18 to $84.52 a barrel.
 
U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures were down $0.16 to $82.48 a barrel.
