i'd rather pay a little more at the pump if it meant emptying someone else's natural resources first but, yeah, fark OPEC. I hope oil stays below their solvency price point forever.

Thanks Obama.

What I'd really like to know is how close the US really is to self-sufficiency in primary energy. I wouldn't call you a liar if you told me it was closer than it had been in some time, but hard data would be nice.

Obama's administration was actively trying to limit drilling/fracking for a whole 8 years.

Then this EIA link looks to be perfectly suited for what you are looking for.

This is one where I admit the USA is taking the hit for Canada.

So long as OPEC is losing, we all win, but so long as economic viability escapes OPEC, the tar sands also run at much lower capacity.

OPEC loses and Canada's oil reserves aren't being diminished as much. Sure, the tar sands are good for the dollar and our overall economy but I like us holding back some of our resources for now

We're saving that resource for conversion to liquid fuels via the Fischer-Tropsch process.

9 million barrels of oil. Every day.

Jurassic Park is real, filmed live on location at the Shell station.

This is why our lord and savior Jesus Christ gave victory to our divine mortal savior Donald J. Trump and his cabinet of Angels. As a Christian nation so divided from the devil's own son and Anti-Christ, Boorak HUSSEIN Obama, the lord has bestowed us a gift beyond measure, Donald J. Trump! America is finally on a path away from the mass destruction and ruin set in place by the children of Satan, the liberals. Americans can finally be proud to be Americans again. It was the Lord Jesus Christ that summoned his faithful to the voting booths in 2016 and real, true patriotic Americans answered his call. Upon my knees I prayed everyday to the Lord, when he spoke to me he said "My beloved Patriot, my TRUE American, the foe, the heretic and demon Killary must be defeated or America will be lost forever." Thank you lord for hearing the prayers of REAL Americans. God bless America and God Bless President Donald J. Trump.
P.S. Lord, I pray extra but I won't be in church Sunday, my husband got me a new machine gun for the coming Civil War and we are going to practice. Please Lord, let my aim be true and stand beside me when your loving followers begin the Purge of the god hating liberals and those brown people. Amen

data actually goes into 2017, but it is reported in "quads". We do "barrels" and "cubic feet".

America will invade the US for its oil.

Sounds like parody but you're so good at it I can't really tell.

And soon absolutely number one in spills, water contamination, air pollution, worker deaths...

I really dislike it when a article switches from the United States to America.  In the same sentence especially so.  There is a big difference.
"The United States led the world in oil production for much of the 20th century, but the Soviet Union surpassed America in 1974, and Saudi Arabia did the same in 1976, according to Energy Department figures. "

You gotta dry clean coal or else it will stain.
