    Let's see

    Maybe I can copy it here. That's interesting.

    35 Peru 1
    36 Syria 1
    37 Thailand 1
    Other 158
    Total 10,088
    Persian Gulf ** 2,400

    Includes crude oil imported for storage in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

    * Formerly Zaire
    **Includes Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates.

    Just for something to ruminate on............Add up the barrels we get per day from countries that don't especially like us and/or countries that are unstable. You can begin to see why crude jumps a couple bucks when someone in the MidEast "sneezes".

    And think about this

    Although Canada ranks up at the top, mainly due to the bitumen being added up as "reserves" in Ft. McMurray, I ask you to follow the money. China is investing heavily in the Canadian petroleum industry and especially Alberta and the Tar Sands. Now picture China in a few years as an economic engine like the US is/was, and what do you think China might do if it's petroleum supplies, that they invested in, become disrupted by some political shenanigans in Canada/US. Picture Canada and the US as a new middle east with India and China scrapping over the resources....Things that make me go "Hmmmm" in the night.
