White House: Obama to return to Gulf Coast Friday

Associated Press - June 3, 2010 10:24 AM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama will return to the Louisiana Gulf Coast Friday to assess the latest efforts to counter the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

This will be Obama's third trip to the region since the April 20 accident that started the spewing of oil in the area, and it's his second visit in a week. The incident is now considered the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

The White House says more details on Friday's trip will be released later in the day.
