US oil exports are really making some gains in 2019, as the graph below shows.  West Texas Intermediate oil is now flirting with $60/barrel.  I cannot see from any data source where the oil is going.  The latest information I could find is from 2018; but, much has changed since then.  The latest data point on this chart is from 6/21/2019, 3.8 million barrels per day.

Please note that this chart just represents exports.  The US is still a net importer but that quantity is dropping fairly fast.  Based on current and expected geopolitics, I would say that oil prices and exports should rise significantly by 2020.  I hope so.
