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.
