This year the US produced 83% of the energy it consumed. Up from 73.9% in 2008.
Not so fast Sparky. Because of the Obozo's booming economy (NOT), there could merely be less demand for energy thus creating the illusion we're producing more of our own.
I believe 2008 was the year that energy consumption cratered.And production has increased quite a bit from 2009 on.
