Gulf oil spill leak now pegged at 95,000 barrels a day

That's 19 times more than the official estimate of 5,000 barrels a day. An engineer told a congressional committee that videos released Tuesday show that one of the leaks is gushing 70,000 barrels a day, while the other, which had not been seen by the public before, is spewing 25,000 barrels a day.
