Bill Arnold, energy management professor at Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business, says the latest agreement means more good news for Houston.

Last weekend, 11 non-OPEC countries joined the oil cartel and pledged to cut production.

The goal is to reduce inventory and stabilize the price of oil.
