The opening statement on the website of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries
(OPEC) says its members seek “ … to secure an efficient, economic and regular supply of
petroleum to consumers, a steady income to producers and a fair return on capital for those
investing in the petroleum industry.” To achieve these goals, OPEC attempts to coordinate and
unify petroleum policies by raising or lowering its members’ collective oil production. However,
increased production by the United States, Russia, Oman, Mexico, Norway, and other non-OPEC
countries has placed downward pressure on the price of crude oil.

of oil at its desired level?
○ How easy is it for OPEC to achieve this goal?
