Gulf of Mexico Oil Production Falls off Cliff.

The House's Natural Resources Committee has created this chart to document the decreasing amount of crude oil production in the Gulf of Mexico's reserves. Production has fallen off a cliff from 2010 levels of 1.65 million barrels per day to slightly under 1.4 million barrels right now, and 1.2 million barrels next year.

We cannot sustain our nation on imported crude oil in the future: we must drill in the Gulf of Mexico's abundant reserves, and in the untapped ANWR reserve.

What say you?
