"Tomorrow. Oil prices have been slipping these past few months and its members will discuss cutting production of oil to pump those prices up at the recent g twenty meeting Russia and Saudi Arabia's just that they were willing to work together to do this. But actually finding agreement between oil producers is notorious notoriously difficult. Marketplace's jed Kim reports when global oil prices collapsed a few years ago, OPEC and other nations came to an agreement to cut production and prices went up they'd love to see prices rise again. But it's no longer a triage situation. Pavillon is with Raymond James two years ago. The global oil market was unim- big US, we oversupplied that is not the case. Any longer. Right now, the global oil market is broadly, speaking, balanced, Russia isn't in OPEC, but it's a top producer and could benefit from price hikes. Recently, though, it signaled that it didn't want to deeply and Saudi Arabia may be limited in what it can do. It's walking a political tightrope with the US and President Trump Jason board after X Columbia University's center global energy policy concern among some that you risk invoking Trump's higher if you cut production and try to push up prices now given that he's tweeted he'd like to see the opposite. Meanwhile, US oil production is booming in September jewelers pump close to eleven and a half million barrels a day. A twenty percent increase over last September Kim for marketplace. The post office has not been setting prices for package delivery with profitability in mind. That's the word from the treasury department in a new report.

The post office has hired some financial trouble in recent years seen a big drop in mail volume, and it's losing billions of dollars a year. So in April, the president asked the treasury department to look into this and come up with a plan. That's this report. So what are the what are the main ideas one is to raise prices, including the postal service charges, Amazon and other retailers to deliver their packages, those rates aren't public. But the president has complained that they're too low. The report also says the US should have the option to deliver mail less frequently like maybe five days a week instead of six that would require congress to pass a law, and there's other stuff in the report to like reforming the pension system for federal employees, which includes postal workers. So increasing contributions from workers and also moving away from plans where you guarantee them certain pay out in retirement, one thing to note earlier this year, the president said he wanted to privatize the post office, but the report doesn't suggest that. Marketplace's Mariel Sagarra. Thank you. Thanks. And let's do the numbers..
