OPEC Will Wait for $100 Oil Before Maybe Raising Production

Bloomberg reports:
“OPEC, the supplier of 40 percent of the world’s oil, will only consider increasing output when the price of crude rises to $100 a barrel, according to Kuwaiti Oil Minister Sheikh Ahmed al-Abdullah al-Sabah.The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, due to meet again in September, wouldn’t raise production with oil at $75, “but if it reaches $100, maybe,” Sheikh Ahmed told reporters in Kuwait today.”

How many times do we need to learn the same lesson before we act to break this cartel by breaking oil’s virtual monopoly over transportation fuel? We’re in for a shock, as Set America Free’s Gal Luft wrote recently in the Baltimore Sun. Are we going to do anything about it?
