Breaking News: The OIL has shifted under your feet!:
Here’s the stunning fact: since 2004, the largest exporter of oil to the United States is not Saudi Arabia; it’s Canada.
The Saudis aren’t even the second largest exporter of oil to America anymore; Mexico passed them in 2009. Moreover (and here’s the second moment): in 2009, for the first time ever, Canada exported more oil to the U.S. than all Persian Gulf nations put together.
