how will the gulf oil spill effect cloud formation? will the oil on the water stop condensation an cloud formation in those areas or will the oil evaporate with the water and cause rain with oil to come down?

    All of the oil will not evaporate.  There will be chemical vapors that will evaporate and will be in the air, but it should not affect cloud formation.  There won’t be any rain that is oil.  The reason is that oil is too heavy to evaporate in this way and then resolidify.
