That chart is a little out of date: domestic oil production is way up, consumption is still down, and hence total imports are down a lot. We now only import half our oil (ONLY HALF! cough, ahem) and are actually a net exporter of refinery products (which is kind of weird, we import a lot of oil, turn it into gasoline and diesel, and then export those, when it would make more sense to refine them at the production point ... except that we have a lot of spare refinery capacity thanks to increased fleet mileage and the lingering effects of the Great Recession).
