Amount of Oil Imported to the US

From this info-graphic, you can see that the US oil reserves are going to last as most for 12.4 years, which is during our lifetime right now. If we don't find a way to stop this, it could be a very big problem in future times as our population continues to increase.

US Usage on gas vs. Portugual

From the looks of this graph, it seems that the US is using a great lot more oil than Portugal even though they have more cars than us. This shows that there is a problem in the way that we use our oil and we need to find a way to fix this.
Transportation plays a big part in using up the US oil so this is one of the major problems causing our dependency on foreign oil. If the country would invest more in the other types of energy, it could be a great help in reducing the amount of oil used.
