I'm a fisherman and I'm in the process of volunteering my boat to help BP with the cleanup...the wait sure is long, but we've got to get this cleaned up.

Too early to tell how affected we will be. All indications so far will be widespread unemployment in the seafood industry. Our oilfield industry will undoubtedly be affected also by the halting of drilling as well as new regulations and safety measures that will have to be implemented to prevent another tragedy. The most tragic consequence of all, however, is the lives that were lost in the explosion. I encourage everyone to pray for the families who lost their loved ones. I realize that the oil which is leaking into the Gulf of Mexico will have tragic consequences, but the families of those who were killed have to deal with far worse.

It hasn't affected me thus far but the prices of gas & seafood will undoubtably go up.

Probably not what your question means but-We will all be affected when the gas prices go up. They are already talking $5.00 a gallon.

My husband works offshore and he hasn't stopped working so it isn't affecting his job, not yet at least. If he were to have to take a boat out, then it would affect him getting offshore, but if he flies out, he can get where he needs to go. The prices will be going up on gas. BP isn't worried about spending money because in the end, they will get it back, one way or another. It may take a few years, but they will get their money back by raising gas prices or some other way.

Hasn't really affected me. I don't go out too often. My boat's been broke down for a while now. Hopefully it won't be too bad. I doubt it will save for people who wholesale their seafood from La....

So far it has shut me out of one of my fishing areas- Hopedale.

This accident won't have an effect on prices at the pump- believe it or not, one well is a drop in the big bucket of supply. I'd be more worried about the traders on wall street and the government. They are the ones who push up fuel prices.

And remember, only the exteme SE corner of the state has been effected, you can buy all the clean seafood you want from the other 85% that hasn't been touched (and hopefully won't)

You contradicted yourself. This will effect fuel prices BECAUSE of the traders on Wall Street and the government. They use any excuse they can find to drive up prices.

The higher the price of gas the better. It greatly reduces the amount of traffic.

make sure you read that contract good or better yet ask an attorney to read it for you. BP has a clause in there that prevents you from filing suit on them if you hire on to help them clean it up. I think they have figured out its better to pay as many fishermen as they can now a couple of grand than to pay them later in class action.
Thanks

I saw on the news where Bp has recended their "no fault" liability for accidents for people helping with the clean up.
And the billions they make per year in profits will only affect the few billionares, that invest in BP, for a short time (poor things). They may only make millions this year instead of billions and that's after expenses. Check out Exxon's yearly profits after expenses. BP does have to pay for clean up, but they only have to pay up to
75 Million in damages to people
That's petty cash to them
But that's how our capitalist sytem works, when the oil tycoons take the risk of investments and profits and accidents and all. High risk High profits
People can't beleive how much profit these oil companies make, but it is risky as well
Any way I'm more concerned about our eco system and the plankton in the ocean being affected than anything else right now
