WASHINGTON—The Gulf of Mexico oil spill could be leaking at a rate of 25,000 barrels a day, five times the government's current estimate, industry experts say.
Basing their calculations on government data and standard industry measurement tools, the experts said the Gulf spill may already rival the historic 1969 Santa Barbara, Calif., and 1989 Exxon Valdez disasters.

This was after the platform sunk. Then they say it's leaking 1000 barrel, then 5000 barrels, now, it may be as much as 25000 barrels.
This is getting so typical. Government can't get their story straight because it's full of lies.
