The U.S. ...... Top Crude Oil Producer By 2017?

We have been known to poke some fun at the oil futures predictions that have come out of Goldman Sachs the past couple of years. Most have been almost laughable. But we can't help but report on a statement coming out of Goldman Sachs this week as they predict the U.S. to be the leader in crude oil production in 2017. Honestly, if we had some leadership in Washington we would be the worlds leading oil producer and all of our economic woes a thing of the past. Both, are yet to be seen.

In the release Goldman Sachs is saying that U.S. oil production should reach 10.9 million barrels a day by 2017, a third higher than 8.3 million barrels currently. Russia, now the top oil producer, should see production increase only 100,000 barrels in the same period, for an output of 10.7 million barrels a day.
