Cleanup crews search for oily tar balls along the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011. City officials believe the tar balls are from last year's BP oil spill, and they were dredged up from the bottom by Tropical Storm Lee. They say tests will be performed to verify the source of the tar balls. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
