I've seen this chart; no new news. Let me add Nigeria, Venezuela, and Mexico to the list we should invade. Oh, I forgot, we own most of Mexico already...


You have seen this chart before? Really? Yet you stated we get most of our oil from Canada? Do you consider 11% most of our oil? Is this the kind of research you do? \:\/


Well honestly....from what you have put as data...yea we do get "most" of it from Canada. ;\) 11%

"Most" is usually interpreted as more than 50%. In the context that Kitty used it, there is no way that 11% would be considered most

Crude Oil and Total Petroleum Imports Top 15 Countries
May 2008 Import Highlights: July 14, 2008
Preliminary monthly data on the origins of crude oil imports in May 2008 has been released and it shows that two countries exported more than 1.50 million barrels per day to the United States. Including those countries, a total of two countries exported over 1.20 million barrels per day of crude oil to the United States (see table below). The top five exporting countries accounted for 66 percent of United States crude oil imports in May while the top ten sources accounted for approximately 88 percent of all U.S. crude oil imports. The top sources of US crude oil imports for May were Canada (1.840 million barrels per day), Saudi Arabia (1.579 million barrels per day), Mexico (1.116 million barrels per day), Venezuela (1.030 million barrels per day), and Nigeria (0.851 million barrels per day). The rest of the top ten sources, in order, were Iraq (0.583 million barrels per day), Angola (0.464 million barrels per day), Algeria (0.440 million barrels per day), Brazil (0.318 million barrels per day), and Kuwait (0.263 million barrels per day). Total crude oil imports averaged 9.657 million barrels per day in May, which is a decrease of (0.264) million barrels per day from April 2008. Total crude imports for May include 0.033 million barrels per day for Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR).

Canada remained the largest exporter of total petroleum in May, exporting 2.265 million barrels per day to the United States, which is a decrease from last month (2.534 thousand barrels per day). The second largest exporter of total petroleum was Saudi Arabia with 1.604 million barrels per day.

In total, he says 79% of all imported crude oil came from non-Middle East OPEC countries in 2006. Keating concludes by writing that energy independence requires: (Is that "most" for you?)


“two things on the policy front. First, remove governmental restrictions on domestic energy exploration, development and production. Second, allow for free trade so that U.S. consumers and businesses are able to meet their energy needs in the international marketplace.”

Let's put them out of business altogether and read this:

Then I suppose there will be no more cause for war.

WASHINGTON -- On the same day Republican presidential contender Sen. John McCain held a town hall in Warren, Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama pledged to UAW members his support for a second economic stimulus plan with funding for low-interest loans to automakers, saying "America cannot truly prosper unless Michigan prospers."
