Speaking Of Statistics

The Iraq war: "It's all about the oooooooiiiiiiiiilllllll!!!!!!"

Quick question: What country provides the single largest volume of the US's oil imports, Iraq? Saudi? Iran? Someone else?

Click and drag between the lines to see the answer:
---------------------------------------------

Our primary source of oil imports is Canada (16.9% of all imports), followed by Saudi Arabia (14.5%), Mexico (13.4%), and Venezuela (11.3%). The amounts do vary, but Canada has been number 1 for some time.

---------------------------------------------

Stats found here.

Iraq is a ways down the list with 3.9% in 2002 and 5% in 2005, with Iran at 0%.

Now is when it gets confusing. That same country is where our largest volume of exports go, with the U.S.'s third largest import supplier being our second largest export destination.
Got that?

And Iraq is poised for profit potential... seeing as how it's such an untapped market. Got that?
