Where in the World Does Our Oil Come From?


About three-quarters of the oil used in the United States comes from outside the Persian Gulf in the Middle East. That's due to large North American producers like the U.S. itself, Canada and Mexico. The U.S. is among the world's leaders in oil production.
Almost 40% of the oil we consume is produced here at home, primarily in Texas, Alaska, California, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.

Gear, we love it, we live because of it

Florida to go overboard on biking enforcement

South Florida has a motorcycle problem, and lawmakers are introducing legislation to show bikers that they'll go a long way to punish those who break the rules. Stunt riding (including wheelies), excessive speeding, and concealable license plates will get you a 10 year ban on your motorcycle license, mandatory jail time, and an impounded bike.
