    Mexico vying for top position as oil exporter to the U.S. Mexico is positioning itself to become the single-largest crude supplier to the U.S. Mexico’s proximity and steady supply has allowed it, for years, to be named among the top four suppliers, which export more than 1 million bopd, each, to the U.S. In January, according to the U.S Commerce Department, Mexico exported 48.3 million bbl of oil to the U.S., ahead of Saudi Arabia’s 46.7 million bbl and Venezuela’s 44.2 million bbl. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that neighboring Mexico was in the second spot in 1997, 1999 and 2001. "Whether Mexico’s number one or two, it’s a strong statement in its timing and substance about its ability to be an ally in addressing North American energy issues," said Mexico Energy Intelligence Director George Baker. The U.S. DOE said that Mexico shipped more oil than any other country in the last three months of 2001.
