According to a recent poll, most Americans think the majority of the oil imported to their country comes from the Middle East.

Yet when taking into consideration all the countries that export oil to the country, it’s clear that most of the oil comes from North and South America.

Canada is the top exporter of oil to the US. In just the past six months, the nation has imported approximately 12.3 billion gallons of gasoline from their northern neighbour.

What most Americans are not aware of is that a whopping 60% of the oil they consume is produced within their own country.

The only time the US imported more oil than it produced was between 1997 and 2010. Currently, the country is well on its way to eliminating dependency on other countries for oil.
