Approximately 63 to 65%. There is some variation as imports and crude production are not reported at the same time. The Department of Energy has an excellent website with weekly import values and monthly production values. The latest import value is 9.2 million barrels per day, and the latest production value is 5.3 million barrels, so 63% is imported. The longer term average of imports is around 10 million barrels per day, so using this figure, I calculate 65%. So slightly less than two-thirds of our oil is imported. See related links.
