Has the use of coal been affected at all by the oil spill?

    No. While the oil spill in the gulf was a tremendous economic disaster that resulted in the spillage of countless gallons of oil, it was still just a small portion of the world market’s supply of oil. The spill did not result in such an enormous loss of oil that we had to increase our usage of coal. In fact, oil is hardly used in energy production, accounting for less than 1% of all energy generated in the US.
