I was just going through the trade data on the US Census.gov website to see what how much trade the US is doing with countries like Iran, which US

In 2003, there were $161.3 million in imports from Iran and $98.9 million in exports.

Exports under this category were $177,000 in 2002 and 22,000 in 2003.
