The numbers in this info graphic do not appear to add up and be consistent.
It says USA consumed a little under 19 MILLION barrels of oil per day in 2009. For the whole year this would be a little under 7 BILLION barrels of oil consumed in the whole year 2009. However another bubble in the info graphic says that in 2009, the USA imported 4.27 TRILLION barrels of oil. That is a thousand fold difference, with the imports being almost a 1000 times bigger than consumption!
We are screwed, but we had better have the numbers right!
