In this edition of "Business Nation," CNBC's Trish Reagan investigates the oil sands. There's a major oil boom going on, but it's not in the sweltering heat of Texas or the dry desert of Saudi Arabia. It's in the frozen Canadian tundra, outside a small town called Fort McMurray, Alberta. The Canadian province of Alberta holds the second largest oil reserve in the world 175 billion barrels, more than Iran and Libya combined. And Canada has become the single largest source for American oil , surpassing Saudi Arabia.
