(Information on the oil leak in Alaska and the Motorola Atrix updated in today's Hot Trends article.)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Heating oil prices" is a trending search topic today after an 800-mile pipeline in Alaska, owned by BP ( BP) and four other companies, was shut down due to a leak.

The pipeline, which carries up to 650,000 barrels of oil each day, was shut down on Saturday after a leak was reported.

Ownership of the Alyeska Pipeline Service managed pipeline is shared by BP, ConocoPhillips ( COP), ExxonMobil ( XOM), Chevron ( CVX) and Koch Alaska Pipeline.

Oil prices shot up to above $89 a barrel following the news.


Atrix is a hot search topic today after the new Motorola ( MOT) gadget impressed consumers at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year.

Motorola's Atrix 4G is a new Android-based phone that will launch on AT&T's ( T) network.

The device features 1 gigabyte of memory, a fingerprint reader and high definition video capture. It hooks up to an HD dock with USB ports, HDMI connections and speakers as well as a laptop dock with an 11.6 inch screen, full keyboard and speakers.


"Stock market" is a heavily searched topic as U.S. stock futures were lower on Monday after Friday's release of disappointing December job data.
