Oil imports to the United States from Russia for the week ending February 25 fell to zero from 106 thousand barrels per day in the previous week, according to data from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Russian oil supplies to the United States were at zero for the first time since the end of January.
Earlier, White House press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the United States does not rule out the possibility of extending sanctions due to the events in Ukraine to Russia’s fuel and energy complex, but is trying to minimize the consequences for the global economy.
Canada supplied the most oil to the United States last week – 3.63 million barrels per day against 3.869 million barrels a week earlier. The second place is occupied by Saudi Arabia (exports to the United States – 520 thousand barrels per day), followed by Mexico with 497 thousand barrels.
