Loss of Income Due to Drop in Tourism

Businesses all across the Gulf of Mexico continue to struggle with the aftereffects of the devastating oil spill that occurred in April of 2010. Both the environmental and economic impact of the spill can hardly be put into words. One serious problem has been a drop in tourism to the Gulf states that has caused many business owners to lose revenue. The oil company responsible for the spill should also be responsible for paying these damages. However, not everyone has received the money they deserve.

Types of Lost Income

The effects of the April 20th spill extend far beyond the physical impact of the oil leak. One of the major effects that the spill has had on the Gulf of Mexico area is the decrease in tourism. Many Southern states rely on visitors to boost the economy by shopping at local businesses, dining at local restaurants, and buying mementos of their trips.

Due to the oil spill, much of this regular tourist revenue has been lost in the form of the following:

  • Diminished sales
  • Lost work wages
  • Damaged reputation
  • Loss of patrons at hotels and condos

Frustratingly, this loss of a business’s overall income can also force them to lay off employees, which can put many families in a difficult situation.
