Where U.S. oil comes from

Green Sheet has this great graphic on where U.S. oil imports come from:

It illustrates very clearly a point I've made before: while the U.S. is highly dependent on oil imports, most of that oil comes from close to home, rather than the Persian Gulf. Note how Canada, Venezuela, and Mexico are our three biggest suppliers, and Saudi Arabia is supplying less than 5% of total U.S. oil consumption.
