Dorian is forecast to strike the Atlantic coast of Florida by early next week as a major hurricane. Some computer models project Dorian may cross the Florida peninsula and enter the Gulf of Mexico.
Oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico account for 16% of U.S. crude oil output and about 4% of U.S. natural gas. ■
