They would have a war on their hands even if they tried.

They are dredging the pass and stirred it up. The West-side fishing area is closed off, not sure if it's due to the dredging or the oil mat. Hope the "sky is falling" types don't get too worked up about it. Can't be that big of an area.

BP monitoring oil mat in Orange Beach
Press release one hour ago. I saw the original report yesterday but didn't have time to Thread it....

"The tar mat was found Saturday when a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredge contractor hit it, creating a strong odor and oil sheen near Outcast Marina, according to Phillip West, coastal resources manager for the city of Orange Beach."

PS I was in that area by water Saturday around 15:00 and the tide was moving out hard. I didn't see nor smell anything, but with the tide going out that would be understandable....

It was found right at the Marine Police station and the Old Outcast Docks. Wouldn't it be funny if we discover its from years of spillage from the Marine Police and the boats docked there??

Hjorgan,

I agree! Suck it up with the dredge and move on!

Not all BP labeled gas stations are buying gas from BP.

And thats stupid as hell. BP had an accident and has done everything they can to make it right. I guess you think they spilled all this shit on purpose. What are they supposed to do, fold the company and move back to england?
