    Anybody notice that there aren't any oil slicks washing up ashore along the Gulf of Mexico coast, and no environmentalist wackos mewling about any of this?

    Eleven missing, presumed dead. For a blow out that apparently should have been engineered against...and when the fire is extinguished, a possible oil spill. In the Gulf of Mexico, as if Louisiana has not suffered enough.

    After the coal mine disaster last week, makes me wonder if OSHA is doing its job.

    It's just more proof that Big Daddy Big Gubmint can't be everywhere all the time.

    My smapathies to the families of those killed in the tragedy.
    Yep another excuse to raise the price of gas even if it will not impact the price of oil.

    Even without this $3.25 gas by summer? Or higher?

    The Deepwater Horizon is used for drilling and does not actually produce any oil. When BP has sufficiently explored the area and wants to begin extracting oil, it will use different equipment.

    There may be a minor spike, but short lived. Now if this was a refinery, that'd be a bigger deal.
