When you include liquids production from natural gas production, the US is now the largest oil/liquids producer in the world as of March 2013, greater than Saudi Arabia or Russia. This is, of course, due to the revolution in energy production called fracking.
I have no idea why the American people are so hostile or have negative attitudes about the highly competitive US oil and gas industry. It's just millions of solid professional people working hard every day to provide energy for your car, home and for our industry at the cheapest possible price. Why are they so vilified and demagogued by this Administration and the American people?
We should be singing their praises.
