I agree, BP is only doing what they were required to do. Being safe and doing the right thing would cost them more time and money. It's BP and other Big Oil Co's lobbyists that are keeping such regulations out of the industry.

Coming from a business mindset, why would you want things that decrease your prophet margins? What they do makes complete sense... Funny how it's never a big deal to anyone and you never hear much about it until something happens. Seems as though people should learn from this wouldn't ya say? But to blame a corporation for doing only what is required is pretty ridiculous in my opinion. Why would you build a wall with studs on 8 inch centers when 16's or 24's are all thats required of you? I am in no way however saying that regulations should'nt be stricter, obviously there should have been some changes put in place long ago, but a company is going to do what it can to legally make the most money and for that no one can really be pissed, every business does this regardless of how large or small.
