"After approximately $4.5 billion paid out to victims of BP's record-breaking Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the company is urging U.S. officials with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility to halt further compensation. Citing an improving Gulf coast economy, the British oil giant said in a 29-page letter (PDF) released to the press that it does not expect any more residents or businesses to 'incur a future loss related to the oil spill.'"
