Will the Gulf's oil slick mess up Florida's tourism this summer?

With 2,000 barrels of oil spewing into the Gulf Gulf-Coast tourist hot spots are now worried about this summers business.   After all, who wants to lay out on a beach with oil splashing up on you?

But will it really be that bad?  Nobody seems to know yet but that uncertainty has pre-booked visitors questioning if they should cancel their plans.  And if you're gonna visit a US beach this summer one might think about other beach hotspots in case the worst should happen.

The good news is - they have SOME of the leak under control as of May 19th after about a month of uncontrollable leaking.  Time will tell what will happen...
