Why is the U.S. not getting more of its oil from its own supplies or Mexico?
The most important reason is the extensive demand. Current US' domestic supplies provide approximately 60% of the country's needs, while 40% (some 11 million barrels per day) have to be imported from other countries. While current technological advances are allowing lesser imports -- i.e: expansion of renewable sources or extraction on more difficult places, such as the Arctic Circle -- it is very difficult to be completely energy-independent.
On the other hand, most oil is imported from Canada (28%), Saudi Arabia (13%) and Mexico (10%). Nowadays, Mexico has reached a "peak oil", meaning its capacity for oil extraction has stagnated, even diminished due to dwindling reserves. Mexico is currently trying to alleviate this problem by allowing foreign companies to invest in oil extraction on Mexican soil and waters for the first time in over 70 years, but at least for the time being, it cannot increase its production.
The oil spill affected the U.S. and son will be getting to Mexico.
At the very least, to fuel your Hummer.
The oil pump on supplies the oil to the bearings. The oil being squeezed by the bearings is what creates the pressure. If you are loosing then the bearings would be the problem.
Mexico produces 2,602,000 barrels of oil per day while Venezuela produces 2,175,000. Mexico is a larger producer, by almost 19.6%
Under the current conditions certain oil supplies will only last for 40 more years. If conservation efforts are made and enforced these supplies could last much longer than this.
Some predictions are for 40 years, but this ignores more difficult deposits like tar sands and oil shale, which will become more important as the supplies of liquid oil are depleted.
because,all the goverment from mexico owe money to US
Imagine if oil supplies get exhausted how this will affect your lifestyle.
In general terms: Canada: manufactured goods, industrial machinery, agricultural products and some fuels such as crude petroleum and natural gas. United States: capital goods, industrial supplies, consumer goods, agricultural products. Mexico: manufactured goods, oil and oil products, raw materials, agricultural products.
It would help Mexico, as increased oil prices would mean more income. This is what is actually happening right now, as dwindling oil sources keep prices high.
They are using diapers, (yes), and hair because it can absorb the oil more better
The US is the country that supplies the greatest amount of the oil consumed by the US. Canada is the second largest supplier of oil to the US.
There are more than 3000-see map below-
The major import source is Saudi Arabia. There is still a significant amount of oil produced in the US, mainly in Alaska, Texas and offshore. Answer: The top ten sources of oil imported to the USA are: Canada Mexico Saudi Arabia Venezuela Nigeria Angola Iraq Russia Algeria Brazil
Mexico does not import any oil, as it is a net exporter of oil.
No, there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Oil is less dense than water, but it is more viscous (has more resistance to flow). Perhaps that's what you were getting at.
2.6 quarts. 2.9 quarts with oil and filter change. 3.1 quarts in manual shift. Manual shift takes a little more because the oil also supplies the transmission.
In the current year, 2011, we have seen many mass uprisings in the oil-producing Arab world, including a civil war in Libya that is still taking place. This causes some disruption of oil exports, and some concern about the possible effect on future oil supplies. Even if there is no actual oil shortage, nervousness about oil supplies is enough to drive up prices. Or for the more cynical explanation, greedy oil companies will use any… Read More
Mexico is an American country that is directly to the south of the United States. Mexico is very rich on oil.
Most oil and natural gas is located on the lowlands across the Gulf of Mexico, as well as on the continental shelf off the Bay of Campeche. On the interior, there are several oil fields but are more difficult to exploit. Mineral coal (lignite) fields are found on northern Mexico.

The Mega Borg tanker spilled oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 1990.
Oil are nonpolar substances, and water is a polar substance. Because of this, water molecules are more attracted to each other than the oil, and will not break their bonds to dissolve the oil.
Oil in the Gulf of Mexico No one knows how many gallons have spilled and estimates vary greatly. It's certainly in the millions of gallons, with more being spilled daily.
The oil rigs are clustered around the gulf of Mexico, extracting oil from under the sea floor.
Of course. Haven't you heard about the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?
Right. Mexico is one of the largest producers of oil in the world.
OIL powered warships, tanks, and airplanes.
Right now they are suffering the effects of oil spills and phosphate pollution. This means 'dead zones' where no life is found in the Gulf of Mexico.
Most oil wells found in Mexico are located offshore, on the shallow waters of the southern Gulf of Mexico.
The Gulf of Mexico seabed seeps quite a bit of oil, anyway; the planet will surely have more difficulty recovering from the dispersants.
Mexico is an oil exporting country, so it does not need to import any oil. However, Mexico lacks the refining capacity to transform this oil into its derivatives, such as gasoline or diesel. Therefore, it uses oil refineries such as those found in Texas.
Most oil wells in Mexico are found on the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and along the lowlands of the southern Gulf of Mexico coast.
In fact the US has more resources than Mexico; it however has such demand of strategic minerals like oil, silver or molybdenum, that it imports such resources from other countries. One of them is Mexico.
The world's oil reserves are where the world's oil supplies are located. This is exceptionally important in monitoring the world's oil supply.
There are 3850 oil rigs in the gulf of Mexico as per ask.com...
BP is 100% totally responsible for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
11% of total US oil imports come from Mexico.

Yes, there are reports of several whales being suffocated by the spilt oil. See links for more details.
Yes. 63% of environmental problems in Mexico are derived from oil and oil-related substances, such as diesel, gasoline or heavy oils.
The three most important modes of oil transportation from Mexico to the US include pipeline, oil tanker and railroad.

What caused the the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was an oil well blowout and explosion.
how would the oil spill in gulf Mexico affect the dolphins.
There is not one, but there numerous oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. Their purpose is to pump the oil from the oil deposits located deep within the sea bed in that region.
The positive uses of oil are for medical applications: petroleum jelly for healing skin conditions disposable plastic medical supplies that prevent the spread of infection Both of these uses can be replaced by other, more natural (and probably more expensive) substances. ................................................................................................................................. there's nothing really positive about oil, but oil is good in one way it can help you cook stuff eg: veggie oil normal cooking oil ect........... so that's as best as i can… Read More
The oil is not being pumped from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. The oil comes from a broken pipe.
Depth of the sea floor. For example at 30,000+ feet of depth, it becomes increasingly difficult to drill for oil on the open sea.
