The White House vowed Friday that no expansion of offshore oil drilling will take place until investigations are completed into a rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, which is sending thousands of gallons of crude oil lapping toward Louisiana’s shores.

With the edge of the massive spill reaching the gulf coastline late Thursday, according to wire services, the crisis is threatening to eclipse the Exxon Valdez as the nation’s worst environmental disaster in decades.
