How will the price of seafood be affected by the gulf oil spill?
By your asking that particular question, I can only assume that you know the answer.
Also, food prices in general will be higher, and some in shortage, because a lot comes up the Mississippi.
Consider the cause of the oil spill. Yeah, obviously there was some engineering problem (or perhaps sabotage), but if it were not for huge world-wide overpopulation leading to scarcity of easily available resources, why would BP be having to drill a fricking MILE DEEP in the Gulf in the first place?

I think that the oil spill will raise the cost of seafood and it could possibly not be from the oil spill but just another way to increase the price of food in general. I'm hoping that the people in the gulf coast will not have to go thru another traumatic loss because of a man-made disaster this time which should not have happened but more than likely seafood will cost us more.
I've already seen the price of seafood rise here on the gulf coast. This is particularly true in restaurants. I suspect people will cut back before paying prices that are almost double what they were 4-6 weeks ago.

The Gulf oil spill is bad. For that matter any oil spill is bad. I am not a rabid environmentalist but I do believe we need to protect the wildlife we have left as well as our beaches and wetlands. To a point. Let's not get carried away. Chris Matthews actually called...

Most people know of the Exxon Valdez. What is forgotton is that after 20 years Exxon Mobile paid a total in the neighborhood of $300 million. The 5 Billion they were found liable to pay in a court of law was whittled down to nothing after 20 years of appeals.So I find it very...
