NATIONAL NEWS — The Wall Street Journal reports federal prosecutors are looking into whether or not BP lied to congress about how much oil was leaking. The results of the investigation could mean more civil fines for the oil giant.
Right now the Federal Government says about 5-million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. But BP says it's around 2-million barrels.
