Your comment today about how if you dropped 1 quart of oil in the river, you would be fined $10,000 a day! But BP is Injecting 70,000 Barrels a DAY (according to Purdue University Steven Wereley)! 70,000 barrels x 42 gallons x 4 quarts/gallon = 11,760,000 quarts of oil/day!
11,760,000 x $10,000 = $117,600,000,000 Fine/day! or about $118 Billion dollars/day!
But this is BP, A huge multi-national corporation, thus TO BIG TO JAIL! let alone pay a fine!
