5 Companies That Have OPEC "Concerned"

Motley Fool -- There are rumors floating around that OPEC might cut back on its oil production. This would be the first time in five years the organization has made a move to cut output; the last time corresponded with dropping demand as the global economy headed into recession.

OPEC will still control prices by adjusting for less production. Assuming of course that US can deliver on its oil production.

You're kidding me. OPEC has not cut back its output? They've done that REPEATEDLY to force higher oil and gas prices. Or did you forget all that?

Keep OPEC cartel off balance - back on its heels.

Domestic production is a wonderful thing.

Let's have more of that!

I am guessing we are producing more in the US and importing less, but keeping the profit margin the same and prices high based on world prices.

it is really a shame, we could control the gas prices if we just stuck together. if everyone would just burn one gallon a week less, or just buy enough gas for what they actually need we would bring big oil to their knees. remember they can only store so much.
believe it or not gas prices is what caused the recession. gas goes up everything goes up. stop being fools and only buy as much gas as you need, sure they will try to scare us with higher prices at first but like i said they can only store so much and then we got them. so wise up

I don't care about OPEC "concerns".
I just want our own oil companies to stop charging us $3.99 a gallon for gas.
