Generally Alaska is the second highest producer of crude oil in the United States – Texas is number one. In 2010, Alaska produced 599,000 barrels of oil per day while Texas produced 1,169,000 barrels per day.
That is down from 2005, when Alaska produced 864,000 barrels per day.
Louisiana is generally considered the #2 producer; the Federal offshore in the link in Ashleligh’s answer is mostly Louisiana, and is more than any state (including Texas). World Oil (August 2011) lists Texas (1,584,000 b/d), Louisiana (1,333,000), California (585,000), Alaska (581,000), North Dakota (353,000).
