Oil Leak Widget
PBS Newshour

Developers at PBS Newshour have created a free, constantly-updated widget for anyone to use on his/her website or blog. No one knows for sure how much oil has leaked into the Gulf of Mexico since the explosion of Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig owned by British Petroleum, on April 22, 2010. But this tool uses estimates provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, outside experts and BP itself to keep a running tally of gallons leaked into the Gulf.
