HOUSTON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Energy giant BP Plc said on Tuesday it had sharply increased the amount of oil it was capturing from its ruptured Gulf of Mexico well, but U.S. officials are still trying to figure out how much crude is actually gushing out.

The London-based company's share price closed down 5 percent in London after U.S. President Barack Obama said he wanted to know "whose ass to kick" over the massive spill.
