NPR's Martin Kaste reports from Caracas, Venezuela, where high ranking representatives of oil exporting countries are gathering for a summit. OPEC leaders will discuss how to respond to demands for increasing oil production, as a way of lowering petroleum prices. They're not expected to take any action that would drive oil prices below twenty-five dollars a barrel.
