68. its a spin of carefully placed numbers and words
or truthiness, yeah 75% disappeared is you count the lightweight components of the gusher (methane, ethane,all the other gasses) and if you include natural dilution (but that just means the oil got spread out) and if you include the dispersants (which spread out heavier weight oil,) but that still leaves over a million barrels of tar in concentrated forms (stuff you can still see). The rest well, it's much less noticeable, but it is still there, either in the gulf / atlantic/ or atmosphere.
