US Oil Imports, By Country

Although easily found on the Energy Information Administration's (EIA's) website, here for convenience are the monthly volumes of oil imported into the US from the top 20 suppliers, sorted from greatest to lowest monthly volume. We have also calculated the average daily rate of oil imported in December 2007, as well as each country's percentage of the total US imports during that month.

Note that in December 2007, Mexico fell behind Venezula and became the 4th largest exporter of oil to the US, rather than the 3rd largest. Watch the next post for more details.

Remember, the US imports about 60 % of the liquid hydrocarbons/petroleum that it consumes.
