US crude oil imports since 2013 have been less than 10.2 million barrels per day

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, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).

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.

Added to the local production, this is a lot of fossil-bio fuel burning and associated pollution and GHGs? Could be one of the highest per capital pollution makers?
