Japan seeks Mexican oil to replace Iranian flow

Japan is putting the finishing touches on a $1 billion-plus deal to secure increased oil supplies from Mexico -- a deal that has assumed urgency in the aftermath of Monday's cutoff of Iranian oil to Japan.

Japan is also negotiationing with the United States for Alaskan oil.
