Seen on social media – Biden and Ukraine

I did not fact check the military aid figure, but the amount spent on Russian crude oil sounds about right.

In 2021, the US imported an average of 209,000 barrels per day of crude oil and 500,000 bpd of other petroleum products from Russia, according to the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) trade association.

This represented three percent of US crude oil imports and one percent of the total crude oil processed by US refineries. By contrast, the US imported 61 percent of its crude oil from Canada, 10 percent from Mexico, and six percent from Saudi Arabia in the same year.

I have read that we have tripled our imports of Russian crude oil, but I don’t know the date periods being referenced.

Crude oil/barrel price today is about $110. 209,000 barrels (barrels per day in 2021) equals $220,900. That doesn’t include the “500,000 bpd of other petroleum products from Russia”.
