I don't know the top 4 or whatever. I only know that about 46% of Iraqi oil exports are to the USA. But where the rest of the oil is coming from... no idea.

C ya!

Isn't Canada part of the British empire.

OK, I'm impatient. so....
Here's how it goes....

Country Barrels*, %ofImport , TOT%ofconsumption
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Canada 1717 , 15.75 , 9.06
2.Saudi Arabia 1662 , 15.25 , 8.77
3.Venezuela 1540 , 14.13 , 8.12
4.Mexico 1166 , 10.70 , 6.15

*in thousands of barrels

-overall, 25.3% of our imported oil is from the persian gulf.
-overall, 14.5% of oil counsumed in the US, comes from the Persian Gulf.
-overall, 4.19% of oil consumed in the US, comes from Iraq.

So, why do I keep hearing that the only reason we are going to war if for oil? 4.19%!!! With this logic, we should be going after our neighbors up north!

-note-these statistics are taken from the energy efficiency administrations website @ http://www.eia.doe.gov/

Not because we need the oil for our use, but to control the oil. It becomes a bargaining tool in our dealings with France and most especially China.

That is why they are against the war, they don't want us controlling the oil they use. The war would also guarantee our presence in the mideast for a long time to come.
