You produce the gas but import the oil the gas is made from. You import 64% of your oil. 21% of that comes from Canada.

Yeah, except as soon as we get it out of the ground we sell it abroad....so much for energy independence.

I thought hybrid cars and alt fuels were supposed to cut down on oil consumption?

Of course they need more oil to build the plastic cars that get better gas mileage.Ok, makes sense now.

If you see this as a good thing, you are a short-money motherfucker. Why are we allowing big oil and coal to pollute our atmosphere at no charge? For cheap gasoline? Gas should be closer to $10-15 per gallon to account for externalities but no one will wake up! Btw, I'm very middle class and American

it'll be number one by default since we will have outsourced all of our other production and manfacturing

we should be using all our oil reserves. Technology is producing smaller and more powerful batteries every day.  We will have fuel cells capable of running trucks, buildings, boats. Long before we run out of oil reserves.

Oil is going to be so dangerously close to being non existent on our planet in 2017.  If this country is still relying on oil in 2017, it wont matter if we are the number one producer of it.  We will be in bad shape.

Why is this a good thing? Wouldn't it be better if we were number 1 in clean energy technology?
