Those energy bills may not be as bad if the price of crude oil continues to take a tumble.

Oil prices have dropped to $63.00 a barrel, and they could fall even lower.

The drop comes despite OPEC's decision to cut production next month in order to push prices up.

A research report says oil is being driven by the financial crisis across the globe, not by the oil cartel.

Oil prices peaked in July at $147.00 a barrel.
