Except every oil slick (to name just one of many oil problems)
Oil slicks, big and small, there weren't hundreds of them.
Unlike crude oil spills, in the case of "accidents" with refined, therefore "light" petroleum products, there is a lot of evaporation.
In addition, synthetic products contain much less if not no aromatics, which are the most harmful molecules.
I am not writing that there would be no problem, but that they will be less serious for the environment.
