With crude pushing $138 as I write, this fresh in from Eurostat this morning (2006 data being the latest available):

See? The UK does have at least something economic going for it. Sort of.

Nota bene, from Eurostat: "The energy dependence rate is defined as net imports divided by gross consumption, expressed as a percentage. Gross consumption is equal to gross inland consumption plus the fuel (oil) supplied to international marine bunkers. A negative dependency rate indicates a net exporter of energy. A value greater than 100% occurs when net imports exceed gross consumption. In this case, energy products are placed in stocks and not used in the year of import."
