NEW YORK --- Oil prices rose above $145 a barrel Monday, July 14, the Associated Press reported.

Light, sweet crude for August delivery gained 55 cents to reach $145.63 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, AP said. Earlier in the day, the contract had dipped as low as $142.49.

On Friday, July 11, the contract had reached a trading record of $147.27 a barrel before closing just down from Thursday's settlement record.
