BP's (BP -4.1%) ruptured oil well is leaking at the top along with seepage about two miles away, White House's Robert Gibbs says, and officials are monitoring bubbles that can be seen on an underwater camera. Leaks could mean the cap on the well must be opened to prevent oil and gas from escaping elsewhere. Update: CNBC says BP scientists say the seepage is naturally occurring and unrelated to the well.
