Nymex oil tops $97, but Brent retreats

MarketWatch -- Oil futures rose Monday, settling above $97 a barrel for the first time in over a week as the dollar pulled back from earlier highs, while Brent crude retreated from highs seen late last week.

Prices had touched an intraday low below $95 early Monday.

Alaska North Slope Crude is almost $20 more per barrel. It closed yesterday at $115.78 and the North Slope produced 582,072 barrels. Not a bad day!

Oil is way over priced. There will be a large market correction one of these days when the bubble finally bursts.

Oil at these prices do not support $3.65/gal retail gasoline prices. Maybe $3.30/gal, but not more.

Oil futures rose because of pure speculation. Speculators are driving the price of oil and the cost of gasoline, certainly not supply and demand.

All we care about is when the price falls at the pump.
