OPEC Ministers Call Emergency Weekend Meeting

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries holds an emergency meeting Sunday. They will talk about an output hike to fill a supply slump caused by Venezuela's petroleum strike, now in its fifth week. That disruption, and tensions with Iraq, have the Bush administration lobbying OPEC for a production hike. NPR's Lynn Neary talks with Vahan Zanoyan, CEO of PFC Energy.
