WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Gulf Coast beaches and fisheries are reopening after the BP oil spill as optimism grows for a final kill of the blown-out well this month, the top U.S. spill response official said on Sunday.

Retired Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen told CNN's "State of the Union" that President Barack Obama's administration would keep "a steady hand on the tiller" to clean up the world's worst offshore oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
