BP revealed Monday it has so far spent two billion dollars on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, after an internal BP document suggested the gusher might be spewing far faster than initially feared.
In a statement to the London Stock Exchange, the embattled British energy giant said its costs to date included ongoing efforts at containment, relief well drilling, grants to Gulf states, claims paid to affected individuals and businesses, and costs incurred by the US government.
One has to wonder just how much they will get away with. The amount spent thus far doesn't even begin to deal with the issue the leak has caused. And the leak is getting worse!
Americans should be turning their attention to their own government and Haliburton - who, BTW, has profited nicely from this situation.
