ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Thursday night in the Gulf of Mexico workers had to postpone an effort to lower a giant containment dome over that leaking oil well because oil fumes created a fire risk.

People who make their living off Gulf seafood are keeping a close eye on work to stop the leak.

At The Catch in Albany they're still buying seafood at regular prices, but they worry that could change.

"The Apalachicola Bay is where we get all of our oysters and we're concerned about that. Supply and demand is the way it is with everything, even if we can get seafood from the Atlantic the prices will go up," said Bo Henry, The Catch Owner.

British Petroleum hopes to have that containment dome in place by next week, and they hope it will stop 85 percent of oil that's spewing out of the well.
