Abstract: We present new measurements of the oxygen gas-phase abundance along four sightlines probing gas inside the Local Bubble, using data obtained with FUSE and STIS. By combining our results with seven previously published N(O I) and N(H I) measurements, we determine a mean O/H ratio for the Local Bubble. We find (O/H)LB = (3.45 ± 0.19)×10−4 (1σ in the mean), similar to previous measurements for sightlines probing gas well beyond the Local Bubble.
