Somehow state-level oil production is not in the Wolfram Alpha database

The same sort of result happens with any other US state, and presumably with Canadian or Russian provinces as well. Wolfram Alpha has data on every country's oil production - searching "nauru oil production" will helpfully tell me that the island nation of nauru produces 0 barrels per day - but state-level data has somehow not been programmed in.

This is such a trivially easy to acquire piece of information - and one that might be used quite often - so it should absolutely be in the database. I'm not sure where I'm supposed to post this sort of recommendation for data, so I apologize if this is categorized incorrectly.
