Oil back above $100 a barrel... We're seeing gas prices go up in the Twin Cities too...
After trading in the red for most of the day, the Dow is up just a few points and S&P is on the cusp of being in positive territory. After six straight days of gains, it is nip and tuck whether we will see a seventh. The close is just a few minutes from now.
Technically, the six-day winning streak is snapped. The Dow fell 1.5 points, or just .01%, and the S&P fell 0.03%.
