US Energy Secretary, Spencer Abraham, has reportedly said that Opec was at fault for the high fuel prices in the US. This conflicts with the comments made last week by Vice President Dick Cheney that the shortage of US refining capacity has caused the price increases. Abrahams said that the US needs to be more independent from foreign oil sources, and that the Bush Administration’s comprehensive national energy policy will be revealed next week. ‘Right now, with respect to gasoline, we’ve got a supply problem. Opec has reduced production that constrained supply, that raised prices.’
