GULF OF MEXICO - JUNE 13: A controlled burn is viewed from the air over the site of the British Petroleum (BP) oil well in the Gulf of Mexico on June 13, 2010 off the coast of Louisiana. The spill has been called the largest environmental disaster in American history. U.S. government scientists have estimated that the flow rate of oil gushing out of a ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well may be as high 40,000 barrels per day. President Obama will make his fourth trip to the Gulf tomorrow. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
