In light of the ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico which continues to spill over 200,000 gallons of oil a day, the poster of the week commemorates what is now the second largest oil spill in U.S. history.

Exxon Mobil Corporation is the parent of Esso, Mobil and ExxonMobil, companies that sell fuels and lubricants around the world under the Esso brand name. This poster refers to the disastrous oil spill that occurred on March 24, 1989, when the oil tanker Exxon Valdez struck Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska, spilling more than 11 million gallons (42,000 m³) of crude oil.
