The Gulf oil spill has been ongoing for over 70 days with seemingly no end in sight. With Hurricane Alex miles away from the Gulf oil spill, it still continues to hamper containment efforts. Cleanup vessels have been sidelined by the ripple effects of the storm, which is staying far from the site of the spill. BP said suspended operations included skimming, controlled burns of oil on the ocean surface and flights spraying dispersant chemicals.
