U.S. imports smaller fraction of oil
More than one-third of the worldwide supply came from OPEC nations. The U.S. produced 18.6 Mb/d. Russia was the third-largest oil supplier with 11.2 Mb/d.
Since 2005, U.S. petroleum production has increased, reaching 18.4 Mb/d in 2020, more than double 2005's 8.7 Mb/d. During that span, the portion that the country imported has declined, and in 2020 the U.S. was a net exporter of petroleum products.
