U.S. proven reserves of crude oil and lease condensate totaled 29.5 billion barrels in 2011, a 15-percent increase from the previous year and the highest level since 1985, according to a new report from the Energy Information Administration. Crude oil proven reserves alone totaled 26.5 billion barrels, a 14 percent increases from 2010.

Liquid natural gas proven reserves (which contain methane as well as ethane and butane) also increased in 2011, up to 348.8 trillion cubic feet. That’s a 10-percent increase from 2010. Dry natural gas proven reserves (which is just methane) increased 10 percent as well, to 334 trillion cubic feet.

President Obama’s frequently repeated claim that the U.S. only has 2 percent of the world’s oil reserves is misleading. While the U.S. has only 2 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves, the U.S. has more total recoverable oil than the rest of the world’s proven reserves combined. That means the U.S. can and should be energy independent, regardless of what happens with alternative sources like wind and solar.
