U.S. Shale Greater Threat To OPEC After Oil Price War, at reuters.com. Fracking has lowered the price of oil from $100 plus to around $40.

As OPED restricts supply, the price will rise. As the price rises, more frack wells will open up and supply oil at the higher price. As the supply rises, the price will go down. Market prices work in coordinating supply of and demand for scarce resources. HT carpediemblog.
