The U.S. government's current estimates indicate that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig has leaked millions of gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico, at times up to 60,000 barrels per day. The blowout preventer, which hinders the flow of oil at the sea floor in the event of an explosion, failed to prevent this disaster. Even with the leak stopped, the Gulf Oil Spill will continue to have a devastating effect on the coastal areas of the Gulf States for years to come.
