The share of petroleum net imports to US petroleum consumption in 2017 was 18.9%—the lowest level since 1967, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).
Net imports are calculated as total imports minus exports. The share of total petroleum imports relative to all US petroleum consumption in 2017 was 50.8%.
The two data series (net imports and total imports) have been moving in tandem for several decades, but in recent years have uncoupled due to a rise in petroleum exports. Increased crude oil production and the lifting of a crude oil export ban have contributed to the rise in exports.
