the US wont survive WITH texas, texas may as well save itself
Just give us Austin and we'd be just fine, thank you.
It depends on how much they decided to charge for gas; roughly 1/4 of all US oil refining capacity is in Texas.
Without oil though their refinaries are worthless ... they wouldn't be able to maintain the output they have now with only their oil to work with
Texas produces oil, and can import from Mexico and other Gulf coast sates. In America, there is a greater constraint on refining capacity than oil supply.
It isn't likely.
it can but texas has the 14th most powerful economy in the world so it wouldnt be a good thing and if n dakota pulled out as well we would be in real trouble mostly because of fossil fuels
