Gulf Oil Spill Could be Worse than Expected

Ad Feedback

British Petroleum is suggesting the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico could be worse than they originally thought.

BP spokesman Mark Proegler said oil is still gushing out from a leaky pipe, even after they inserted a tube into it to capture 210,000 gallons a day.

"We're literally using every substance, every material we can to keep this oil out. Once it gets inside the wetlands, it'll be nearly impossible to clean up," Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said.

Meanwhile, the oil is moving deeper into the marshlands. Orange globs and thick sheets of oil now coat parts of Louisiana.

BP will now try to stop the leak by plugging it with thick mud. If that doesn't work, the worse case scenario is the oil leak won't be stopped until August.
