Should North Carolina Still Consider Offshore Drilling

President Obama pledged an all out response to the massive oil spill expected to reach the Gulf Coast within days.

About 795 liters of oil is spewing from a well drilled by BP.

It was Sunday when an oil rig exploded off the coast of Louisiana.

And since then, oil has continued to spread rapidly.

Now questions and concerns about offshore drilling off our coast have been raised.

The idea of something of this magnitude happening here has many on alert including the North Carolina Coastal Federation, who fear the possibility of a spill happening here.

Despite what has happened off the coast of Louisiana, there are many people who are still for offshore drilling pointing out the possibility of it bringing more jobs to the area.
