According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2015, the United States produced an average of about 9.4 million barrels of crude oil per day, consumed an average of about 19.4 million barrels per day, imported approximately 9.4 million barrels per day and exported about 4.7 million barrels per day, resulting net imports (imports minus exports) of about 4.7 million barrels per day. The Dakota Access Pipeline will help the U.S invest the crude oil directly to our country, allowing us to produce our own gasoline, jet fuel, residual fuel oil, kerosene, heating oil and diesel fuel. This will also allow the U.S to cut down on importing, making the U.S energy independent. The key to America’s national and energy security rests with our ability to provide for our own energy needs with our own natural resources, personnel and infrastructure (Blakeman,
