    OPEC maintains output. Is anyone steering oil markets?

    The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) met Friday amid an unusual level of uncertainty, even for a market as volatile as global oil. For decades, the 12-nation cartel has held sway over oil, coordinating production levels among its members to keep crude prices high enough to suit national budgets, but not so high as to crimp the global economy. But in recent years, a rising tide of oil production elsewhere has significantly eroded OPEC's influence, and the group seems increasingly content to let markets move without intervening.

    Report: Falling Oil Price Adds to Production Risk

    Falling global oil prices could lead to a cut in higher-priced production in the United States, Canada and other countries, adding to the risk to future oil production from violence and other disruptions, a recent analysis found. Increased output from Libya and Iraq helped contribute to more supply on the market and falling prices, which continued their months of decline Monday to a four-year low. But the risk to global production rose in resent months, according to the energy security advocate group Securing America’s Future Energy, which analyzed costs of oil production, fiscal dependence on oil revenues, levels of political unrest and instability and unplanned supply disruptions.

    Family spending on gasoline hits all-time high

    The average U.S. household spent more than $2,600 on gas last year for a third consecutive year — an all-time high and a 111% increase compared with the amount spend a decade earlier, an advocacy group says. The increase was due to the high price of oil, says the group, Securing America's Future Energy, which aims to reduce America's oil dependency, based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Expenditure Survey.

    SAFE: Report's 'flash points' emphasize US transportation fuel problem

    A proliferation of global oil geopolitical "flash points" makes it even more urgent for the US to aggressively reduce its dependence on crude oil for transportation fuels, according to speakers discussing a report issued by Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE).

    The report, "Oil Security 2025: US National Security Policy in an Era of Domestic Oil Abundance," identified key fundamental trends and conditions that potentially could trigger instability in the Middle East and North Africa, Sub—Saharan Africa, Russia, and China.
