What are the Top 5 (most popular) HERBS that are used for cooking in the U.S?

By sales: cilantro, Italian parsley, chives, basil, rosemary/thyme. (those last two always go together so I count them as one). Dill and sage have some respect but poor sad oregano is left all by it's lonesome, only loved by dive pizza joints.
