Will BP pass on the costs to consumers?

Written by Susan Mannella on .

This oil spill in the Gulf is the perfect reason why offshore oil drilling should be discontinued and illegal.

Look at all the wildlife dying because of it. Look at all the damage being done to the Louisiana beaches and marshes. Will Mississippi, Alabama and Florida be the next targets for this spill? Will it hit Cuba, the Florida Keys, the Bahamas or even the Eastern coastal states?

How much more of the environment do we have to destroy before something is done about it? BP should be held accountable. It should pay all expenses. Maybe it should even be fined. Plus, it should be forced not to put the burden of these costs on the people at the fuel pumps. Make BP take it out of its profits!
