There is a new, simpler way to track the latest trends in crude oil imports, thanks to a new tool released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
The tool, called U.S. Crude Oil Import Tracking Tool, will allow policymakers, analysts, and the public to sort and display crude oil imports by month or year, by crude type, country source, port of entry, processing company, processing refinery, and more. The tool will also feature graphing and mapping capabilities and a built-in help function.
According to the EPA, this tool was made in an effort to assess the effects of a possible relaxation of current limitations on U.S. crude oil exports.
