This week's Question of the Week concerns the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. According to recent news reports, BP said they may drill a new well in the Macondo reservoir -- the source of one of the world's worst oil spills. Proponents believe that BP's earnings from drilling in the Gulf would allow them to pay the massive fines and costs for cleanup of the spill, while opponents believe the oil giant should sell the rights to the reservoir to another oil company and donate the proceeds from the sale.

What do you think? Should BP be permitted to continue to drill in the Gulf of Mexico? Yes or No?
