Government data Series. Part 1:From where do we import our oil?

       I've been listening to various political debates and on thing keeps popping up, our dependence on foreign oil. Off the top of your head, how much do you know about oil? How much do we make domestically? How much do we import? If there is such a shortage, do we export any? Which countries do we import our oil from? Probably like most of you reading this, I thought we didn't make much and we imported it from unfriendly countries that happen to be bursting with oil. I was wrong.

       In 2010 the top two countries we imported our oil from was Canada and Mexico respectively.

  1. Interesting, I wouldn't have guessed those countries to even be in the top 10.
