The United States spends about $700 billion US Dollars (USD) per year on oil imports. This represents about 4% of the country's gross domestic product (GDP), according to 2012 estimates, and is about as much as it spends on accommodation and restaurant services — but much less than the roughly 17% spent on healthcare. The amount spent on oil imports is projected to decline as the use of fuel-efficient vehicles and renewable energy sources increases. In 2012, the Energy Information Administration projected that oil imports were on pace to drop by 50% — to 1987 levels — within two years.
