Where Does America Get It's Oil?

When people think oil, they think Middle East.  But, in reality, our biggest importer is Canada (with 3,169,ooo barrels a day imported in 2015).

The chart is a little old, but is interesting nonetheless.


161218 US Crude Oil Imports

see U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Perhaps more surprising is that America gets most of our oil internally … with 8,796,000 barrels produced last week. 

Meanwhile, we are using approximately 19,400,000 a day.

Crazy numbers. Do you think they'll go up, or down, in 2017?
