I don't know what to tell you, this oil spill event really affect a lot of business industry. For instance, the tourism in the near coast areas, and right now, also the seafood industry. Yesterday, my mom and I went to a restaurant to dine in. We have craving for whole fish dish. How disappointed, the waiter told us they were out of fish for this week. Either they can't get the desired fish from their supplier, or the fish price is going up extremely high. So, we just have leave it. I was just amazed how fast it affects the restaurant business already.

I can only assume that unless all of the seafood is imported from far, far away, that the seafood business is certainly being affected by the Gulf Coast oil spill. There will be a decrease in healthy seafood, increasing the price, since supply is significantly less than demand. Increases in price mean that less people are willing to shell out the cash for a nice seafood dinner.

It is going to be bad for the fishing industry. Even here in Canada, the salmon is expensive. I suspect that the oil spill was no accident because of the advantage that Obama took by wanting to shut down all coastline oil exploration and not permitting other countries to help clean up the spill. He is taking his own sweet time and telling a different story. And he is so important that no one can tell him what to do. In my opinion, the oil spill should have been clean a long time ago. I saw this documentary about using sea bird feathers that will absorb the oil, and that helped in the Exon oil disaster, but then that was just a captain's lack of watching and not due to a president wanting to raise the price of oil and make you use more expensive alternative energy.
