Attention news reporters, editors, producers and quacking heads: The US burns about 18.5 million barrels per day, and produces 7.7.
18.5 – 7.7 is 10.8.
These numbers are from the freakin EIA itself: http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/supply/weekly/pdf/table1.pdf
No wonder the Koreans are kicking our tails in math. We get reports like this, all over the internet and on NPR:
In October, for the first time since February 1995, the U.S. produced more crude oil than it imported, the Energy Information Administration said this week.
EIA, the Energy Department’s nonpartisan statistical arm, said U.S. crude oil production averaged 7.7 million barrels per day in October while 7.6 million barrels per day were imported.
Even if that were true, all it would mean is that we still have to import half the oil we burn. But we’re not there yet, and may never be (again).

Who to believe… Who to believe.
Iran’s oil ministry, National Iranian Oil Co (NIOC) will sell 240,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil to China’s state oil trader Zhuhai Zhenrong in 2012, the same volume as last year, but volumes sold to Unipec, the trading arm of China’s top refiner Sinopec Corp, will be reduced.
Under the 2011 contract, Unipec lifted 260,000 bpd day of crude from Iran.

My sense is that Iran and China can work things out without “the international financial system.” Curious policy from the U.S. now, could work very much in China’s favor.
U.S allies like Japan appear to support the sanctions by “reducing” their oil imports from Iran by some unknown amount.

The terms of the sanctions set arbitrarily by US govt. Could see this coming from the cheap seats.
And let’s just keep this little bit handy –
