The move comes after more than a month of uncertainty. Oil ministers agreed in an emergency meeting today to cut their official output by six percent from that on January 1, 2001. The cuts will last for at least six months. OPEC decided to proceed with the cuts even though rival, independent producers like Russia and Norway promised reciprocal cuts that were smaller than expected. Analysts expect the change to cause a small increase at the pump.
