YAHOO NEWS:Top Kill Failed says BP

ROBERT, La. – BP admitted defeat Saturday in its attempt to plug the Gulf of Mexico oil leak by pumping mud into a busted well, but is readying yet another approach after repeated failures to stop the crude that's fouling marshland and beaches.

BP PLC Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said the company determined the "top kill" had failed after it spent three days pumping heavy drilling mud into the crippled well 5,000 feet underwater. More than 1.2 million gallons of mud was used, but most of it escaped out of the damaged riser.

In the six weeks since the spill began, the company has failed in each attempt to stop the gusher, as estimates of how much oil is leaking grow more dire. The spill is the worst in U.S. history — exceeding even the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster — and dumping between 18 million and 40 million gallons into the Gulf, according to government estimates.

Between 18 and 40 million gallons...

18,000,000 gallons (/) 42 (=) 42,857 barrels in 48 days.

or

40,000,000 gallons (/) 42 (=) 995,238 barrels in 48 days.


BP says 5000 barrels a day times 48 days (=) 240,000 garrels, times 42 gallons equals only 10,080,000 gallons... this news source is saying the leak is up to 4 TIMES GREATER then BP has admitted too. I can't help but feel we are being lied to by everyone, and I do everyone.

Worst case scenario of around 100,000 barrels a day puts it at over 200 million gallons so far.

Darn.
