WASHINGTON, Nov 29 (Reuters) - U.S. crude oil imports fell
539,000 barrels per day from a year earlier in September, the
Energy Information Administration said on Thursday.
    Crude imports averaged 8.375 million bpd in September.
Imports of crude oil have dropped year-over-year in eight of the
first nine months of the year.
    The dip in imports coincided with a decline in U.S. oil
demand in September, down 3.81 percent from a year ago.
 
    Canada remained the United States' biggest foreign supplier
in September, exporting 2.293 million bpd, down 34,000 bpd from
a year earlier.
    Saudi Arabia was the second-largest oil supplier to the
United States during the month, exporting 1.291 million bpd,
down 174,000 bpd from a year earlier.
