Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) -- West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures rose above $88 a barrel for the first time since Nov. 7 as prices gained partly on concern that Middle East unrest will disrupt supply.

WTI crude for January delivery rose as much as $1.13 to $88.05 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange and was at $87.95 at 11:43 a.m. London time. Prices are also gaining on speculation the U.S. will avert automatic spending cuts and tax rises that threaten to throw the nation into recession.
