ABSTRACT
The article asserts that even if the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has already been plugged, the economic and environmental debate regarding the issue will still continue. The author notes that the administration of U.S. Barack Obama is nearing to a decision to end the moratorium on deep-water oil and gas drilling and that Gulf Coast lawmakers have attacked the ban since it was imposed after the blowout. They are frustrated with the ban and the lack of sufficient concern for the economic challenges confronting the Gulf Coast effected by the moratorium.
