OPEC cautions: U.S. 'Fiscal uncertainties persist'

GasBuddy Blog -- We may have some ideas on how American consumers view OPEC, but how does OPEC view its #1 customer --the U.S.A?

In its Monthly Oil Market Report issued Wednesday, OPEC leaders' collective view is expressed candidly and their observations may help us learn more about the severity of political problems here than all the opinionating of so-called 'informed' obervers and pundits.

Now we just have to reduce the benefits to not working so those who don't think they have to work will be motivated to go find one of those newly created jobs.

We have to read foreign newspapers to find out that things are unstable here? Why is that? (As if we don't know...)

Everyone overseas seems to realize what both sides of our government do not -- that this has a serious impact on the economy.

Yet, while one side is willing to negotiate, the other side (the one in the White House) says, "My way or the highway."
