Imports of crude oil to the United States in 2018 were 9.93 million barrels per day (mmbd), a 28% decrease from the highest import level in 2005-2006. Seventy-one percent of crude oil imports in 2018 came from non-OPEC sources, such as Canada (45%). Since 2013, the amount of crude oil imported has consistently been about 9-10 mmbd. Increased domestic production of crude oil is a contributing factor.
