About 1,300,000 barrels have leaked or about 54,600,000 gallons!
If this isn't stopped soon, I'll make a live counter, or if someone else wants to make one now here is what you'll need..

@50,000 bpd - .5787 bar/sec or 24.306 gal/sec
50,000 bar = 2,100,000 gal

Granted we are witnessing a unprecedented event...
According to a study sponsored by UNESCO, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the United States, the spill did little long-term damage. About half the oil evaporated, a million barrels were recovered and 2 million to 3 million barrels washed ashore, mainly in Saudi Arabia.
