Sorry OPEC. There’s a new heavy hitter in the oil markets and it’s not about to be pushed around by you.

According to a new report from the IEA, the United States will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's top oil producer by 2017.

You read that right – the United States.

The same report also said the United States would overtake Russia as the biggest gas producer by a significant margin by 2015.

And by 2035, our reliance on Middle Eastern oil will be virtually non-existent as America will have become self-sufficient in all our energy needs.

Sounds like Uncle Sam is about to play a very influential role in world energy markets, largely due to a new ability to tap unconventional sources.

Middle Eastern politics should be interesting in the coming decades.

Won't make a bit of a difference to our fuel costs.

Most of that crude will go to the world market, sold at world market prices, and NOT benefit the US population.

Unless you're a producer or speculator!

I'll believe it when I see it. So far the Obama administration has been lying through its teeth regarding our productions. The EIA reports can back that up, which also shows that we don't export nearly as much as our government claims we do. The Obama lies continue and most of us intelligent people know that Obama is a pathological liar.

The politics of energy are about to go all over the place, and it's not on account of oil.
