OPEC ministers met in Amsterdam, but had no quick solutions to the rising price of gas. The only promised effort so far has come from Saudi Arabia. By June 1st, America's largest OPEC supplier promises to increase production from 8-point-five million barrels a day to 9-million. But no matter what Saudi Arabia and OPEC do now, analysts say the damage is already done.

Analysts also say increasing production alone won't solve the problem -because the price hike is driven by a number of factors- including higher worldwide demand, production problems and fear of disruption from terrorist strikes or the war in Iraq. Bottomline- high gas prices will be around for a while, but the production hike could hold prices down come fall.
