Letter to the editor published -- in 4th position -- in the 05/10/02
issue of The Economist under the heading "Fuelling America":

Sir --
You say that America's dependence on oil imports from Saudi Arabia
forces it to obtain supplies from "uneconomic" sources ("Don't mention
the O-word", September 14th). If America is willing to pay a premium for
oil from stable countries it may be well advised to continue to do so.
Saudi Arabia is America's largest foreign supplier of crude oil at 588m
barrels in 2001, but Mexico is second at 509m barrels and Canada third
at 495m barrels. Including natural gas, Canada is the largest source of
American fuel imports.

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high
and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our
mark."
--Michelangelo Buonarroti
