California is no longer the 3rd largest oil state

A title I'm sure they're only too happy to shed.

"New Mexico surpassed California and Alaska to become the third-largest crude oil-producing state in the second half of 2017, although it produced less on an annual average basis. In the GOM, new projects and expansions that started in 2016 ramped up production in 2017, which, along with two other projects that began in 2017, contributed to 51,000 b/d of annual growth. Production levels in Colorado, Oklahoma, and North Dakota each grew by more than 30,000 b/d from 2016 to 2017, while Alaskan production increased only slightly. California’s production declined 34,000 b/d, the state’s third consecutive annual decline."
