Oil fluctuated after a report showed stockpiles rising in the U.S., the world’s biggest crude consumer, and as OPEC delegates gathered in Vienna to discuss the group’s production quota.
Futures were little changed after rising for the first time in six days yesterday. Crude inventories increased by 4.27 million barrels last week, the most since August, data from the American Petroleum Institute showed. An Energy Department report today may show supplies shrank by 2.5 million barrels, according to a Bloomberg News survey. Most members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries have signaled they’ll keep the output target unchanged at 30 million barrels a day.
Crude for January delivery was at $85.77 a barrel, down 2 cents, in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange

I wouldn't worry about it, according to some people OPEC has no control over oil prices and cutting production quotas and reducing the overall market supply will have no effect.

Gasoline prices are resisting the drop in crude. Producers are holding out for higher prices coming to a station near you.

If they cut production, we should increase ours by the same or more.

Maybe if the price of oil keeps falling, gasoline will go down to $3.50 per gallon in my area.

Just wished they had an accurate figure. The way this written it is showing mixed signals. Price of crude needs to keep dropping.
