        In May , domestic production of petroleum in the United States surpassed imports for the first time since January The fact that domestic production has outpaced imports is not some random occurrence, but rather the culmination of trends that have been in motion for a number of years. Imports of petroleum have been declining over the last 7 years, .

Light-duty vehicles are those vehicles that EPA classifies as cars or light-duty trucks (sport utility vehicles or SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks with. For a given vehicle, the fuel economy is inversely proportional to its tailpipe CO 2 emissions (which are the largest source of GHG emissions) for a given fuel type.
