BP Spent More on Lobbying as Gulf Oil Well Gushed

BP Plc’s spending to lobby Congress in the second quarter rose 6.3 percent from the first as the company dealt with the fallout from its gushing Gulf of Mexico oil well.

London-based BP paid more than $1.7 million to firms such as Podesta Group and Duberstein Group from April through June, an increase from $1.6 million for January through March, according to congressional filings today.
