As much as 168,000 gallons of oil spilled from a barge's ruptured tank on Sunday, blocking the Houston Ship Channel, U.S. Coast Guard officials said. The spill has stopped about 60 vessels and cruise ships from entering the area. As of Sunday afternoon, oil has been detected 12 miles offshore in the Texas gulf. Officials said it would take at least several days to contain the oil.
