WTI crude oil prices edged higher as traders contemplated remarks from Saudi's oil minister prior to the Organization of the Petroleum Experting Countries meeting next week.

Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Al Falih reportedly said "it's inevitable" that OPEC and its allies will agree to boost oil production next week. Al Falih insisted, however, that the increase in output would be reasonable and won't be anything "outlandish."

The slight increase in oil prices comes a day after the Energy Information Administration revealed U.S. supplies dropped more than expected but output rose to a record.
