Tim’s Observations: 

Where does Wyoming sit in the hierarchy of U.S. oil producing states? Just how much impact does our production impact the jump at the pump? Let’s look at the top seven oil producing states. 

  1. Texas
    Total barrels annually (2020): 1.78 billion
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 43.02%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 150.12 million
  2. North Dakota
    Total barrels annually (2020): 434.89 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 10.53%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 34.59 million
  3. New Mexico
    Total barrels annually (2020): 370.40 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 8.97%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 42.69 million
  4. Oklahoma
    Total barrels annually (2020): 171.74 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 4.16%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 11.84 million
  5. Colorado
    Total barrels annually (2020): 167.83 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 4.06%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 12.24 million
  6. Alaska
    Total barrels annually (2020): 163.85 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 3.97%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 13.38 million
  7. Wyoming
    Total barrels annually (2020): 89.04 million
    Share of U.S. production (2020): 2.16%
    Barrels per month (November 2021): 8.79 million
    Wyoming might be seventh in the nation for oil production, but the difference between fourth place and seventh is a mere 3.05 million barrels per month. Can we to better? I’m sure we can!
