Alaska North Slope crude is following a similar track, coming in at $34.82 per barrel on Jan. 5 – the most recently-reported price.

That’s it’s third-lowest mark since Jan. 20, 2009 when, according to data from the Alaska Department of Revenue, ANS West Coast hit $34.49 per barrel.

Though prices have recovered slightly from Thursday morning, Brent Crude and West Texas Intermediate are still beneath the $34 mark.
