18 Oil Or Gas Spills Per Day In US

"Not counting the BP disaster, we found at least 6,500 spills, leaks, fires or explosions nationwide - that's 18 a day. Overall, at least 34 million gallons of crude oil and other potentially toxic chemicals were spilled. That's triple the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill."
The high profile oil spill in the gulf last year or the current spill in Laurel, Montana only scratch the surface when it comes to the number of spills or accidents taking place on a daily basis just in the US. An industry spokesman's response,"we're lucky it's not worse." Instead of acting with some inkling of responsibility these multi billion dollar companies give us bullshit like this or this. Sorry about the Goldman Sacks of Shit ad that proceeds the CBS News video...
