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.

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.
