What a Mess

June 2, 2010
Beyond the devastating environmental impact, the decreased feedstock levels and subsequent price increases resulting from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will surely affect industry and consumers alike.

The explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in massive quantities of oil spilling into the Gulf. As BP continues to try to put a stop to the spill, the full environmental impact will most likely not be fully known for years to come.

The links below provide additional details regarding the current status of the Gulf oil spill, its far-reaching effects and what’s being done to try to contain the leak.

Beyond the devastating environmental impact, the resulting decreased feedstock levels and subsequent price increases will surely affect industry and consumers alike. Has your company been affected by the oil spill? If so, how? What steps have you taken (or are planning to take) to counteract the Gulf oil spill’s impact on your company and customers?
