con sumers OPEC took a step that could push prices even higher by announcing Wednesday that it would cut its crude oil production target by 4 percent The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries

prices above the psychologically important thresh old of per barrel though futures markets fell on Wednesday The decision could also worsen the pain for motorists who have been paying the highest prices in recent years for gasoline OPEC which pumps about a third of the worlds oil agreed in talks at its headquarters in Vienna to reduce its output target by 1 mil lion barrels per day TEXAS
