Oil Creeps Back to All Time Record

In case you've forgotten the all time record is $147.27. We're less than $1 away, now at $146.48.

The contract rose 10 cents in Monday's floor session to close at $145.18 a barrel, just over a dime short of the all-time settlement high. It has traded as high as $147.27 a barrel, a record set last week.
