Japan Ask Gulf Producers To Boost Oil Production

Japan asked the Gulf Cooperation Council on Saturday to increase oil production

Japan asked the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council on Saturday to make efforts to increase oil production to deal with surging crude oil prices, Japanese officials said.
