The USA bans imports of Russian oil
“We’re banning all imports of Russian oil and gas and energy. That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at US ports, and the American people will deal another powerful blow to Putin’s war machine,” Biden said at the White House on March 8, 2022.
According to the US Energy Information Administration, Russian oil made up about 3% of all crude shipments to the US last year. Overall, Russian oil and petroleum products represented about 8% of US oil imports.
