6:35 am
watching them, they're down 20 cents in the last month, we'll take it, we'll take it. >> we're still about a dollar more than this time last year. the reason why is the high price of oil. it's now trading at $100 a barrel. and that price will be the focus of opec meetings this week in vienna. most experts believe the oil cartel will leave output levels unchanged because there is a surplus of oil on world markets. one executive in the group thinks oil prices will drift closer to $80 a barrel which would bring down gas prices more. opec has not raced the ceiling on oil production in four years. mazda plans to stop building cars in america. the auto make certificate ending it's joint venture with ford leaving it with no production facilities in the u.s. mazda vehicles sold in america will be shipped from japan and mexico starting in 2013. remember the military bowl back in december? the washington examiner reports that the economic output of washington's annual college football bowl game doubled
