In an appearance earlier today, President Obama made an appeal to the public to continue to visit the Gulf and support its local tourism industry, saying: “There’s still a lot of opportunity for visitors to come down here. There are a lot of beaches that have not been affected and will not be affected. If people want to help, the best way to help is to come down here and visit.”
