BP: Leak could spew out up to 4.2M gallons each day
? Officials say there is an alarming new estimate on the scope of the spill in the Gulf.
BP now says the leak could potentially spew out as much as 4.2 million gallons of oil each day or about 100,000 barrels every 24 hours.
The new numbers come from an internal BP memo that was made public over the weekend.
The memo states BP?s "worst case scenario" is far higher than our government?s estimates.
