Facing greater oil demand but possessing limited ability to satisfy it, OPEC countries Wednesday agreed to keep unchanged their output target of 30 million barrels a day.OPEC still supplies about 40 percent of world demand. But present difficulties leave it to OPEC powerhouse Saudi Arabia and its smaller Gulf allies to make up for increased international needs, along with other major oil producers outside OPEC, such as Russia and the U.S.The Saudis regularly raise or lower production to meet demand.
