What state in the US has the most oil in it?
Alaska produces the most oil by a very wide margin of any other state. Ever twice as much as Texas which is second. ND is 9th. There are proven reserves and projected reserves. Alaska has the most proven reserves. The state with the most projected reserves is debatable as it cannot be proven.

Both Tennessee and Missouri share borders with eight states. Tennessee borders Missouri, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama, and Mississippi. Misso…uri borders Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.
Missouri and Tennessee each border eight other states. MISSOURI: Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois TENNESSEE: Mississippi, Alab…ama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri Texas is also a valid answer to this question, since it does not ask for which state is bordered by the most U.S. states. Texas is bordered by the U.S. states of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana and the Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila and Chihuahua.
About 40% of the energy consumed by the United States comes from oil. The United States, with about 5% of the world's population, is responsible for 25% of the world's oil con…sumption. This is a slightly lower consumption per person as compared to the European Union. The United States has approximately 3% of the world's proven oil reserves . The United States, as of 2006, imports more than 65% of the oil it consumes. The United States and Iraq Ex-CIA director James Woolsey and U.S. Senator Richard Lugar wrote: "Energy is vital to a country's security and material well-being. A state unable to provide its people with adequate energy supplies or desiring added leverage over other people often resorts to force. Consider Saddam Hussein's 1990 invasion of Kuwait, driven by his desire to control more of the world's oil reserves, and the international response to this threat. The underlying goal of the U.N. force, which included 500,000 American troops, was to ensure continued and unfettered access to petroleum." The United States and Saudi Arabia As of 2005, Saudi Arabia has 25% of the worlds proven oil reserves and has the worlds fourth largest natural gas reserves. Saudi Oil accounts for about 13% of U.S. oil imports. Former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Chas Freeman, said of Saudi Arabia, "One of the major things the Saudis have historically done, in part out of friendship with the United States, is to insist that oil continues to be priced in dollars. Therefore, the US Treasury can print money and buy oil, which is an advantage no other country has. With the emergence of other currencies and with strains in the relationship, I wonder whether there will not again be, as there have been in the past, people in Saudi Arabia who raise the question of why they should be so kind to the United States." The United States and the Soviet Union Richard Heinberg, a professor from Santa Rosa, California argues that a newly declassified CIA document shows that the U.S. used oil prices as leverage against the economy of the Soviet Union: "The Memorandum predicts an impending peak in Soviet oil production 'not later than the early 1980s' (the actual peak occurred in 1987 at 12.5 million barrels per day, following a preliminary peak in 1983 of 12.5 Mb/d). 'During the next decade,' the unnamed authors of the document conclude, 'the USSR may well find itself not only unable to supply oil to Eastern Europe and the West on the present scale, but also having to compete for OPEC oil for its own use.' The Memorandum predicts that the oil peak will have important economic impacts: 'When oil production stops growing, and perhaps even before, profound repercussions will be felt on the domestic economy of the USSR and on its international economic relations.'" "...Soon after assuming office in 1981, the Reagan Administration abandoned the established policy of pursuing détente with the Soviet Union and instead instituted a massive arms buildup; it also fomented proxy wars in areas of Soviet influence, while denying the Soviets desperately needed oil equipment and technology. Then, in the mid-1980s, Washington persuaded Saudi Arabia to flood the world market with cheap oil. Throughout the last decade of its existence, the USSR pumped and sold its oil at the maximum possible rate in order to earn foreign exchange income with which to keep up in the arms race and prosecute its war in Afghanistan. Yet with markets awash with cheap Saudi oil, the Soviets were earning less even as they pumped more. Two years after their oil production peaked, the economy of the USSR crumbled and its government collapsed." Dependence on foreign oil American dependence on oil imports has grown from 35% in 1973 (the first year reliable data were collected) to 60% by the end of 2006. The Energy Information Administration projects that U.S. oil imports will remain flat and consumption will grow, so net imports will decline to 54% of U.S. oil consumption by 2030 According to the Department of Energy, the top oil exporters to the United States in May 2008 were, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Venezuela, and Nigeria (in order from most exports to least).
Easily California, with a 2008 estimated population of 36,756,666. Texas is not even a close second place with an estimated 24,326,974.
I jumped over to the Department of Energy's website to take a look at what they have to say about this matter, and it turns out that they have some great information about the… matter. I guess that I should have thought of this before, but I guess I have been too preoccupied figuring out which gas station I should boycott. They thinking that "most" of our oil comes from the middle east is wrong. Sorry people...keep boycotting Citgo if you must, but I am here to tell you that THESE are the top ten countries that the U.S. imports from: 1. Canada 2. Mexico 3. Saudi Arabia 4. Venezuela 5. Nigeria 6. Angola 7. Iraq 8. Algeria 9. United Kingdom 10. Brazil = Not to spark controversy. But I am not sure where you are going your Citgo statement. But Citgo is owned by socialist regime of Hugo chavez president of Venezuela. That is why people are boycotting it. Chavez continually makes statements that are negative towards to the US. == Uh the Saudis are related to Osama bin Laden, the Nigerians are laden with rebels and extremist Muslims who would gladly give their lives to Allah to kill an American. Algeria is in a state of revolt, and also filled with the extremists. Mexico is battling drug cartels for control of their own country. That leaves three stable countries here folks! Who cares where we get it from. There is more to things than the media probably leads on anywho!

New York, as It contains New York City.
Some oil riggers will use "pump gas" or what is known as pump runoff but the actual product crude oil is too unstable to use in its natural form .
Between 2000 and 2001 Louisiana was the state that produced the most oil, followed by Texas, Alaska and New Mexico.
Massachusetts is the most prosperous right now. Low unemployment, good pay.
California and Alaska with eight each
