The U.S. production of oil (crude, shale, etc.) is only understood by also citing other facts, i.e. 1. how much it really costs in money and energy to extract this oil; 2. how much oil the U.S. uses in its economy on a daily/monthly/yearly; and 3. global production and usage over the same time periods - plus noting changes up or down depending upon economic, social and political uses. Oil is fungible and traded globally - moving to refineries that can process it and then to those who have purchased it (domestically or internationally). You have done a great job for so many years explaining things, please don't get bogged down on just one useless figure. You still have to understand MMT better as well.
