The oil spill in the gulf of Mexico, is finally starting to settle down. The workers were able to cap one of the three oil leaks. There are over 1100 people working on cleaning up the mess. The oil spill was only 3 miles away from the Louisana shore, and it estimated to be about the size of Puerto Rico. So far the clean up crew has been able to collect 685000 gallons of the polluted water.
I think that we shouldn't have even been drilling there in the first place. Its pointless for us to be drilling close to us. The oil still needs to be sent overseas to be refined. So I don't really see how its benifiting us. We are just putting more oil on the market. As a result of the oil spill i think the price of gas is going to go up, and people won't be happy.
