GREAT AGAIN: USA Becomes World's Largest Oil Producer, Tops RUSSIA, SAUDI ARABIA

And the last time the United States had the top spot in the world was in 1973.
The United States has "likely surpassed" Russian Federation to become the world's largest oil producer, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said on Wednesday.
"Fracking", shorthand for "hydraulic fracturing", has driven the boom in the Permian Basin under Texas and New Mexico, the Associated Pressreports. The practice is controversial, however. When gas prices topped $4 during the Obama administration, many producers turned to fracking and output soared. In February, U.S. crude oil production exceeded that of Saudi Arabia for the first time in more than two decades. Although this was lower than Russia's 11.21 million bpd for the same month, on average, the USA production rate for 2018 so far has been higher, the EIA estimates.
The Gulf of Mexico and Texas will continue to lead the way in US production, with Texas-and more specifically the Permian-shining particularly bright.
In 2014, a drop in oil prices caused US crude oil companies to trim overhead and downsize production.
