A statement from G-7 finance ministers was released Tuesday and posted on the U.S. Treasury Department website. Finance ministers had been concerned about the effect high oil prices would have on already weak global economies and are prepared to take action. Benchmark U.S. oil and Brent Crude have risen 22 percent and 23 percent, respectively, since late June.

"We encourage oil-producing countries to increase their output to meet demand," the statement said. "We stand ready to call upon the International Energy Agency to take appropriate action to ensure that the market is fully and timely supplied."
