Since World War Two, the United States has been broken up into what are known as Petroleum Administration Defense Districts (PADDs). There are five of them and during the war this was done to facilitate oil allocation. Now the five PADDs in the U.S. are used to collect statistical data on petroleum use. The U.S. imports roughly 10 million barrels of oil per day, which then gets shipped to dozens of refineries. So where does it all come from? A fair bit still originates from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel, but a lot of black gold also arrives from Canada.  ORIGINAL POST HERE (Alberta Oil)
