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.

Crude oil for March delivery rose $1.31, or 1.4%, to settle at $97.03 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest settlement since Feb. 1.

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!
