Drill here, drill now -- Remember that?

This article at NPR indicates that the USA is experiencing an increase in petroleum production and a decrease in dependence on petroleum imports.

I'm not sure NPR has the figures right in stating that our dependence on imports has dropped from about two-thirds two years ago to about half now, since what I found shows a reduction in import dependence but not to the same extent.

Nevertheless, it's an improvement even if not quite as great an improvement as stated by NPR.
