Who says that?! Talk about a premature pat on one's own back eh?


Oil stopped gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for the first time in nearly three months, as BP began testing the cap atop its stricken well, a critical step toward sealing the well permanently.

“I am very excited that there’s no oil in the Gulf of Mexico,” Kent Wells, a senior vice president for BP, said about the flow during a teleconference on Thursday, “but we just started the test and I don’t want to create a false sense of excitement.”

No MORE oil, dummy, no MORE. There's still plenty in the Gulf it's just that for now it's finally under control (temporarily).
