White House Asking BP to Disclose More Information

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is asking BP PLC to publicly
disclose more information about the Gulf oil spill including
measurements of the size of the leak 5,000 feet under the sea and
air quality.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that the
White House is writing to BP asking the company to put that
information on its website and be more transparent about its
response.
BP is under fire as scientists dispute the company's estimate of
how much oil is spilling into the gulf. For weeks BP has said the
flow is 210,000 gallons a day, but scientists say the amount could
be much higher. A BP official conceded Thursday there could be
more.
Scientists also are criticizing government agencies for not
pushing the company harder to let independent experts take
measurements.
