The United States appears to be losing its status as the world’s top oil importer, thanks to the colossal turnaround in crude oil production caused by hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling techniques. While China’s 6.3 million barrels per day of crude oil imports are just slightly higher than the United States 6.1 million per day, the trajectory of the two countries’ crude consumption varies significantly. The United States could be the world’s largest crude oil producer by the end of the decade while oil demand drops as fuel efficient cars takeover our highways.

Indeed, the events in Panama City were about as strange as it gets. Panama scored early through Gabriel Torres to give itself a fighting chance but still needed Mexico to lose to stay in contention.

Instead of doing the simple things needed to close out the game, Panama lost possession too easily, failed to eat up clock and forgot to track back in numbers.
