Posted on July 22nd, 2010 No Comments

The BP oil spill could cost the Gulf Coast area $23 billion in tourism from the lack of travelers coming to the coast.

This information comes from a study from Oxford Economics and the U.S. Travel Association and was based on the most recent 25 natural and man-made disasters.This high figure will be the correct loss only if the oil has stopped flowing in the ocean.

Congressional districts have made a figure that 13 to 22 percent of jobs related to tourism in the United States. Officials are asking the federal government to secure the necessary money to prevent severe harm to the economy in the Gulf.
