Nearly 72% (6.1M bbl/day) of all the oil imported by the U.S. last year came from just five countries, in the highest concentration of foreign oil suppliers in 15 years, the EIA says. Canada sent on average 2.4M bbl/day in 2012, a record and 8% more than in 2011. Saudi Arabia sent nearly 1.4M bbl/day, up 14% Y/Y. Mexican imports fell 12%, under 1M bbl/day for the first time since 1994.
