The United States uses about 20 million barrels of oil per day. There are about 42 gallons in one barrel. We import about 14 million barrels per day from other countries. Note that 60% of our imported oil comes from Canada, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Nigeria, Venezuela and Iraq.
"Proven oil reserves in the United States are 21 billion barrels (3.3×10^9 m3), excluding the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. The U.S. Department of the Interior estimates the total volume of undiscovered, technically recoverable prospective resources in all areas of the United States, including the Federal Outer Continental Shelf, the 1002 area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the National Petroleum Reserve–Alaska, and the Bakken Formation, total 134 billion barrels (21.3×10^9 m3) of crude oil. This excludes oil shale reserves, as there is no significant commercial production of oil from oil shale in the United States." (Source)
Assuming Annual consumption of 1.5 billion barrels of oil per year, the United States could exist on its own oil reserves for about 90 years without any imports at all. We are dependent on foreign oil because the Satanic Psychopaths want it that way.
Oil at $60 per barrel makes recovery from oil shale more than economically feasable. We could potentially recover 2,118 billion barrels of oil from shale deposits within the United States. Enough oil to last us for 1,412 years! There is no sound economic reason for not bringing shale oil into production.
We could also talk about oil recovered from tar sands (already being extracted in Canada, where we get 20% of our oil imports).
So, if we have enough cheap oil to last us for well over 1400 years into the future, why are we importing at over $100 per barrel? The answer has nothing to do with economics and everything to do with the New World Order agenda. The Satanic Psychopaths want to destroy the United States Constitution and its greatest defender, the American Middle Class.
They seek to bring this about through manufacturing an economic collapse, and transferring the wealth of this country into the hands of of their Illuminati owned banks and corporations.
