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?

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."
