The price of oil fell to a new four-year low after OPEC said it would maintain production levelsUS oil prices sank more than $4 in opening trade Friday, a day after OPEC decided to not cut production in response to lower prices. Near 1400 GMT, US benchmark West Texas Intermediate for delivery in January stood at $69.29 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, $4.40 below the closing price Wednesday. Friday's decline amounted to a new four-year low for US crude prices, which have lost more than 30 percent of their value since June amid an uncertain outlook for global economic growth and petroleum demand. Some analysts had predicted OPEC might agree to tighten its compliance with the existing quota of 30 million barrels per day, even if a cut to the overall production ceiling was not enacted.
