WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans an Oval Office speech Tuesday night about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

White House adviser David Axelrod says Obama will talk about the disaster after he returns from a visit to the region on Monday and Tuesday.

Axelrod tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the president will lay out steps that the government will take to cope with the fallout from the spill.
