The U.S. ranks 3rd in oil production

According to the CIA World Factbook, in 2011 the United States produced an estimated 9,023,000 barrels of crude oil per day (bbl/day), or 10.6% of the world’s crude oil. That is enough to make the United States rank third out of one hundred two oil-producing nations. Saudi Arabia ranks first, producing 11,150,000 bbl/day, or 13.1% of the world’s total. The top ten oil producing countries account for 63.2% of all the oil produced in the world.

    This info would be more useful if presented on a per capita basis.
    Nice to see you on Steve Paiken’s show the other night.
