The feds and BP continue to clash on how to handle cleanup efforts.
Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency told British Petroleum to stop dumping a chemical dispersant into the water, calling it a health hazard.
Experts now say nearly 130 million gallons of crude oil have spewed into the ocean waters.
Scientists estimate the oil now covers more than 1,400 square miles, that's bigger than Maryland and Delaware combined.
British Petroleum officials say the amount of oil being siphoned from the busted pipe has doubled since Monday.
Officials now estimate they've secured two-fifths of the leak, which is about 84,000 gallons.
