SKYROCKETING PRICES for imported oil are threatening economies around the world. This was the message repeated at the trade ministers' quarterly meeting. While not wanting to alarm citizens and the business community, the politicians stressed that action taken now will avoid future problems. Price jumps of 30-40% over the last quarter have been seen around the region. Governments are pressuring the oil-producing nations to increase their output, thereby lowering the prices.
