U.S. petroleum imports from OPEC countries 2000-2020

The United States imported approximately 887,000 barrels of petroleum from OPEC countries in 2020. That year, import volume decreased by nearly 50 percent following reduced demand as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which resulted in that year's oil crisis. As the United States has stepped up its domestic oil production in the past decade, its import dependence has notably declined.
