ABSTRACT
The article contends that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is driven solely by greed in its consideration of matters related to energy supply and the markets. The gesture by Saudi Arabian minister Sheik Ahmad Zaki Yamani to shoulder the production of 10.3 million barrels per day, which is the largest share by any OPEC member, is driven by greed. The increase or decrease in the price of petroleum in the world market is dictated by OPEC.
