Oil Imports in the US

I've been wondering who exactly is the largest supplier of oil for the US lately because I heard Limbaugh state one day that Canada, Mexico and Venezuela were our largest importers of oil.

Not so, at least not in February, which is the latest month of available statistics.

Canada, Saudi Arabia and Mexico were the top 3 importers of oil to the US in the month of February.

PROOF: I found the website of the official US government organization that keeps up with such data. It's the Energy Information Administration, which provides "official energy information from the US government."

The url is http://www.eia.doe.gov, just in case you might be wondering about the validity of the site. Notice it ends in .gov, which proves it is an official government site.

The link to the actual data is available here.
