Sorry, but the use of synthetic oils does not reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The typical oil that a person buys at the Autozone or Pep Boys store is derived from the fractioning process for processing crude into all the products that can be made from it from asphalt to baby oil. About 2 quarts are produced from every barrel and is classified as API-SA or SB. This oil is then either given or sold to an oil marketer who then buys an additive package to bring the oil up to current automotive standards.
