FILE – The sun sets behind an idle pump jack near Karnes City, USA, April 8, 2020. Major oil-producing countries are deciding how much crude to pump to the world next month. The decision Wednesday is closely watched because oil prices are at seven-year highs and have spiked fuel costs for heating, flying and driving. Fears of a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine are adding to concerns about supply because Russia is a major oil producer and could be hit with sanctions by the U.S. and Europe.
