Tony Hayward gets Grilled, baby, grilled

The Hearings Live with BP CEO Tony Hayward.

Things to keep in mind 1 barrel of oil = 42 gallons

60,000 barrels per day X 59 days = 3.45 million barrels X 42=148.68 million gallons

Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million gallons into the Prince William Sound

As we speak the gusher has spewed 13.76 Exxon Valdez Equivalent Units into the Gulf of Mexico

Consider 60,000 barrels per day X 42=2.52 million gallons= 105,000 gallons per hour/ 60=1750 gallons per minute/60= 29.16 gallons per second.
