Comment Re:will they pay ? (Score 1) 365

They will and are already paying. As they should....

Correction, "they" are not paying. They simply sell gas to us at a higher cost. "we" are paying.

That's not how markets work. Prices are not simply set by the financial needs of the seller, they are set by market forces. In this case, there are other companies from which we can by gas/oil. Sure, prices will go up across the board because of the reduced supply cause by this incident, but they won't go up because BP tries to recoup the cleanup expenditure.
