Gulf crews continue to battle oil spill
A Garden State environmental group, Environment New Jersey, plans to hold a demonstration at a BP gas station today in East Brunswick.
The group says it will release a state-by-state analysis of a Senate bill on oil consumption.
Crews along the coast continue to battle the oil spill on the surface, while BP works at the bottom of the ocean to control the flow of crude into the Gulf of Mexico.
The latest estimates suggest between 500,000 and 1 million gallons of oil are flowing into the Gulf daily.
The ongoing oil spill and how much crude is spewing into the Gulf of Mexico remains a focus on Capitol Hill. Congressman Edward Markey (D-Mass.) says BP's lowball numbers early on clearly were wrong. Members of Congress continue to hold hearings on the response and cleanup of the ongoing disaster.
BP recently released a high-quality video feed of the oil spill after lawmakers pressed the company to release the footage.
White House officials say President Obama will head back to the Gulf, spending next Monday and Tuesday inspecting oil damage in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
