Oil Finally Stops Gushing Into Gulf, Says BP
This is the first time oil has stopped leaking into the Gulf since the initial explosion in April. However, not even this fix is permanent. BP is currently conducting pressure tests to ensure that the new cap will hold.
BP is currently drilling two relief wells so they can finally plug up the mess with mud and concrete for good.
Efforts to drill the relief wells have been ongoing since early May, and are not expected to be operational until at least August (this is the first and only time we'll say this: drill, baby, drill).
