There's actually twice the amount of oil leaking into Gulf

Scientists have re-evaluated their earlier predictions of the amount of oil leaking into the Gulf, in one of the worst environmental disasters in recent times. A new government issued scientific report estimates that 25,000 to 30,000 barrels a day is being gushed into the sea. 

An earlier estimate was dreadfully inaccurate, estimating only around 12,000 to 19,000 a day. [Via NYT]
