Do you think we should bomb Iran and cut off all the oil that we import? If you think the ecoonmy sucks now, wait until you can't drive or heat your home.
According to data from the US Department of Energy, of the top five suppliers of crude oil to the US only one, Saudi Arabia, is a Middle East exporter. In March 2008, the US imported 1.795 million barrels per day (b/d) from Canada, 1.535 million b/d from Saudi Arabia, 1.214 million b/d from Mexico, 1.154 million b/d from Nigeria, and 858,000 b/d from Venezuela. These top five suppliers accounted for 68 percent of total US crude oil imports for that month.
When looking at the top ten foreign suppliers of crude oil to the US, only two more Middle East exporters make the list: Iraq (sixth), which exported 773,000 b/d to the US in March 2008, and Kuwait (tenth), which exported 199,000 b/d. The top ten suppliers of crude oil to the US accounted for 87 percent of total US imports for that month. Other importers that made up the top ten were Angola (sixth, 368,000 b/d), Algeria (seventh, 247,000 b/d), and Ecuador (eighth, 231,000 b/d).
Total US crude oil imports in March 2008 averaged 9.583 million b/d, of which the share taken by Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait was 26 percent. Even including the Arab North African exporter Algeria in the mix does not make much of a difference to the total amount of oil the US gets from Muslim states in the Middle East/North Africa region. Because of sanctions the US does not import any oil from the region’s other major producer, Iran.
You don't have a clue twiki. This has been evident all along, but the more you post, and stick up for this administration, it becomes clearer every day.
