Canada actually is good for something, wow!

June 28, 2006

I ran across this interesting piece of information. Canada is the largest foreign supplier of crude oil to the US. I can’t seem to find the percentage of oil that they provide but this seems to be very interesting fact given what is presented to us in the media.

If you solely rely on what is given to you on the nightly news or from most people memories you would think the middle east provides most, if not all, of our oil. This makes me wonder what impact the middle east really has on our oil supplies, and if we could drop them and still make due. If Canada and others provide enough oil to us could we begin a transition to “friendly oil” sources and eventually to independence?

This seems like something I might need to look further into.
