The federal government estimated that 2,000,000 gallons of oil were spilled per day for the first 44 days of the spill, until a " never before used at such depth" containment dome was installed. This dome or cap reduced the rate of spill to roughly 450,000 gallons per day. In day 1 and 2 how much gallons were spilled?
since days 1,2 are during the 44 early days,
2million gals/day * 2 days = 4million gallons
