The growth of new sources of oil, helped by the widening use of fracking, is expected to enable the U.S. to halve its reliance on Middle East oil by 2020 and possibly eliminate it completely by 2035. By the end of the decade, 50% of oil will be produced domestically and 82% on this side of the Atlantic.
