To keep tabs on the amount of oil that has leaked (and is still doing so) from the Horizon rig, PBS has created a widget that lets you see how much oil has spewed forth thus far — depending on which organization’s estimate you’re going with.
More from the Huffington Post:
“The numbers on how much oil has been flowing out of the Deepwater Horizon well have varied wildly since it sank on April 22. At the low end, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimated 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) were flowing into the Gulf per day, which was the initial, official estimate. However, according to the New York Times, in a closed-door meeting with Congress, a BP executive conceded that as much as 2,520,000 gallons (60,000 barrels) could be gushing out. At the high end, experts have estimated that the rate could reach as high as 4.2 million gallons (100,000 barrels) a day.”
