This is a list of products that are made with oil. 

So how much do you think that oil spill in the Gulf is going to affect you? I thought it would raise gas prices. But it looks like it could raise a lot more.

Part of the problem with stopping the gushing oil is that it is so deep--over 5,000 feet. The reason they were drilling that far out is because environmentalists lobbied for laws making it illegal to drill in shallower water in the Gulf, claiming it would be bad for the environment.

So how do we feel now? Better? Or worse?

  1. I didn't understand until this morning's news report as to why it has been so hard to stop the spill. It's because it's so far away and so far down. Unbelievable! Seems BP isn't ALL to blame after all.
