The United States will become the world's largest oil producer next year overtaking Russia, thanks to its shale oil boom which has remade the global energy landscape, the West's energy watchdog said on Friday.

The prediction comes only days after estimates by the U.S. government showed the spectacular growth in production has allowed the world's largest oil consumer to reduce imports so drastically that it has lost its ranking as the world's biggest oil importer to China.

"The United States' place in the driver's seat of growth is also a throwback to decades past," the International Energy Agency said in its monthly report.

US Soon to Overtake Russia as Top Oil Producer. There was much more crude oil deposits than anybody thought there was. But, will there be enough crude oil and natural gas to supply the US and the world and not run out of it too soon?
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Our balance of trade should be improving which should strengthen the dollar. But Obama insists on deficit spending like a drunker sailor.

Too bad the American consumers and taxpayers aren't benefiting much from increased oil production at home (greedy Big Oil and Big Government).

well, hooray for the big oil men/companies. does "Top Oil Producer" translate to "Top Oil Profiteering?" 'cause somebody is making a killing on consumer gas prices.
