Junkies pleads for just one more cheap fix

Captain Codpiece has used the occasion of his visit to that beacon of freedom in the Middle East, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to respectfully request that OPEC pump more oil. Apparently Our Great Leader is concerned that the cost of filling up the family Hummer is getting to be too much for economically oppressed Americans and this will impact on his legacy. OPEC has so far refused, citing that they don't see any problems with current prices but there are real questions to be asked as to whether OPEC has the capacity to achieve any material increase in output. For some reason these questions don't seem to get asked outside of the energy community.
