The last time OPEC drove the price up a lot, was the 70'*, and it'* still Biting them in the ***. Gas is as cheap as it has ever been since then when you factor inflation.
When OPEC jacked it up in the 70'* that forced everyone to use less. Cars didn't come with v8'* they came with 4 bangers, and some had sixes, People started driving less, and our govt soaked up some of the cost. This actually pushed prices lower then they were before OPEC jacked them up, in the long run, thus hurting OPEC.
