I think that it will definitely hurt the economy in the long run. What if a hurricane hits? BP would have to stop sucking up the oil and move out. That would just leave the "spill" continuous. Then think of what that would mean for the price of oil - gas. Not to mention that with the oil seeping into the ocean its destroying our animal life, including the seafood, and you can just sit back and watch the price for seafood go up in your local grocery store. I also wonder about the pollution in relation to precipitation. Is it possible for particles of oil to remain in our water system? EX: particles of oil go up into the clouds along with water and falls the same? That could be disastrous for our crops. Ppl are already loosing income from the man-spill and I feel that eventually it could make its way to the average Joe's pockets. (I think this is one of WORST screw ups as human beings)

Yes it will, especially in the fishing industry. I just hope we do not have a hurricane this year or else it will get worse real fast!
