OPEC to Clamp Down on Oil Production

OPEC oil ministers meeting in Algeria pledge to cut oil production by 1 million barrels a day beginning in April. More immediately, OPEC seeks to end the so-called "cheating," or overproduction, in which member states currently surpass production quotas. Analysts estimate that practice adds as much as 1.5 million barrels a day to current limits. NPR's Jack Speer reports.
