This chart breaks down U.S. oil imports by country of origin, from 1973 to 2018. Imports peaked in 2005 and declined until 2014, thanks to improvements in domestic production and reduced demand. Imports from Iraq, Venezuela, and Mexico were curtailed the most during this period. Imports from Canada, however, have been rising steadily since 1981. Imports from Saudi Arabia have stayed relatively consistent since the early 1990s, with the exception of an overall drop in imports in 2017 and 2018. Most oil imports from Iraq zeroed out in 1974, 1981, and 1991-1995 as a result of the OPEC Oil Embargo, the Iran-Iraq War, and the Gulf War, respectively. Since 2014, oil imports have increased by more than 7% because of increased overall consumption.
