Where does the US get foreign oil?
You may not know this but according to the US government figures we import more oil from our friends up north, Canada, than from any other country. Some other tidbits of petroleum stats: The United States produces 10% of the world’s oil and consumes 24%. In 2006 the United States consumed 20.7 million barrels a day (MMdb) of crude oil and produced 5.1 MMdb of that leaving 13.7 MMdb to be imported.
