The price of crude oil continues to climb, approaching $105 a barrel. CBS' Anthony Mason attributed the hike to OPEC's decision not to boost production and to the declining purchasing power of the US dollar, "hitting an all time low against the Euro"…NBC's Rehema Ellis continued her occasional series Where They Stand on the status of African-American women.
