most misinformed post/image....like ever.
1. 'BP' didn't lose all that money...the shareholders did. (granted insiders lost too)
2. The stock is already recovering so the loss is already greatly reduced.

Regardless there will be a ~10-20 billion loss on BP's part, but certainly not 100 billion...

chump change for them either way...it's like us dropping a dollar somewhere...i'm sure they have some kind of insurance, for shit like this...and they rented that rig, so they'll find a way to recover that money or most of it some how

I'm sure they have some sort of insurance but I still wouldn't call this chump change. And the figures are just mind boggling, I mean even if BP doesn't directly pay for it, the money's gotta come from somewhere, right?

im not sure about your areas, but my town, BP gas prices are 15-20cents more expensive than the rest of the stations here...not sure why people fill up there, the only thing i can think of is their stations are very clean and big, and their selections of junk snacks are more abundant...
