Do we import coal like we do oil?

    The US does import coal but only imports 3% of what it uses. ¾ of all coal imported into the US comes from Colombia.

    Yes, we do import coal, but not as much as we import oil. We produce a lot of our own coal and export it to other countries. We also import coal, in 2008 we imported 26.2 million short tons of coal.

    The US does import coal, but it exports more than it imports (26 million tons in 2009 exported vs 12 million imported), so it is a net exporter in most recent years. The largest export recipients are Canada and Brazil.
