    God forbid you show respect to an ally.

    Wait until a Republican does that. Then you'll be saying it's the single greatest foreign policy event in our history.

    6% increase vs. last year.

    What else changed? Did we decrease shipments from some place else? Decrease production here?

    There's a lot more to this story than just "US increase oil purchase from SA".

    It's no surprise, Obama won't drill here so we continue to send 500 billion a yr to Oil Lords. He would rather do that than drill here and bring home all that 500 billion a yr and the jobs that go with it.

    I would be guessing, but I suspect the US is also buying less Venezuelan oil.. for political reasons. Add to that... the fall of Gadaffi..

    Easier to refine Saudi Oil, it's sweet light crude where Venezuelan oil is heavy sour crude and requires much more refining.

    And we don't use the type of oil Libya extracts.

    Libyan oil is also sweet light crude (the easiest and cleanest to refine). We get a little less than 1% of our oil imports from Libya (only 44,000 barrels of oil a day).

    Re: US buys more Saudi Oil

    it's a very poor plan for a country like the US to be this energy dependent. we need to start seriously planning and innovating the post-oil model, and we need to do it by 1978.
