5 Days of Oil


The Macondo Prospect, the name for the reservoir of oil slowly draining into the gulf — is considered a small deposit. While its dimensions remain poorly known, BP officials have estimated it contains no more than 100 million barrels of oil. That's five days and change worth of American demand for this precious fuel and a little over 1 day of oil for the world.
All of this for five days of oil or 1 day of oil depending on how you look at it.
