    Oil spill?

    Does anyone in the area have an oil spill report and any info on what they have been told to expect?

    My reply is based on nothing other than my humble opinion and limited knowledge of our geography/water-ways. My fingers are crossed; I hope I'm right...
    I would have to agree. But all those beautiful beaches from Mississippi, east are probably going to get hammered. Me and the Mrs may have to go somewere else for our late summer vacation this year.

    what to expect

    crybaby oil companies will jack gas prices up 25 cents a gallon by memorial day. It's already gone up a dime here in the last 4 days.

    Backdoor drilling of all kinds is messy business if your rig's protective systems breaks down, don't be a crybaby about it.

    I'm with 83gator on this. I think it's far enough east to not affect the ville.

    the worst part IMO is that they did not have a check valve installed to prevent this whole mess. Apparently it is required in other countries and they cheaped out and did not install it.
