If you're going to advocate economic warfare, please pick the right target.
I agree, although I'm doing the same thing with CITGO, lol.
I won't by gas from them period. I ain't giving a red Cent to that Venezuelan pr#ck!!
Sorry, can't do it.
I was looking forward when 7/11 said they were gonna drop CITGO but it never happened.
I did see one 7/11 in Orlando that was selling Shell.
I don't know how they pulled it off because the franchise wouldn't allow that...

As much as I hate to say it, we need to keep buying from BP. They are going to pay for this disaster and if they go bankrupt we all will be paying for it.

What's wrong with BP? They certainly didn't cause the leak on purpose.

I buy from BP regularly, and they also have 93 unlike many others that only carry 92. BP near my gf's house has 93 for 2.89, so that's what I get.

Wish I could get ethanol free somewhere

Yeah noway to Citgo. I have said that if we quit buying from BP them we would have too pay also. Good point. Plus like its been said our neighbors in our community will
suffer before BP would.

BP label on the gas cap of my '07 F one fiddy, no BP on the '11 GT.

I haven't seen it on any of the '10's or '11's, come to think of it. I'll look around the showroom tomorrow.

I agree with Shanec that a boycott of BP brand fuel will only cause more distress amongst American business owners. I don't know if everyone has seen the head of BP going before congress today, but that says something. At least BP has taken some kind of accountability in protecting our coasts instead of leaving it up to our government, who has blocked numerous attempts to place safeguards, ships, and skimmers along the gulf coast. I am also in agreement with Pascal in that I will not support any station with the CITGO / PETRO EXPRESS logo. It befuddles me that some people would, because of an accidental oil spill, drive past a BP branded station to get to one that says CITGO or PETRO EXPRESS and feel like they're doing some justice by supporting a communist, admitted american hating piece of $hit. BP has initially commited over 20 million dollars to an account that is designed to help people affected by this spill. Would Chavez do the same???? I'm not saying BP should be let off the hook because I do believe they are directly responsible for the lackadaisical approach at safety on their rigs, but come on people....

Check their safety record. They have more fines, accidents and payouts due to negligence and willful malpractice than ALL other gasoline companies operating in North America combined (for 2008, 2009 figures aren't yet available). I don't know about the rest of the country, but BP stations are going out of business left and right around here. As for the little guy (station owner), the smart ones have dropped BP and found other suppliers in order to quickly change their signs (Exxon, mostly). All I know is I have a boat sitting in my back yard and I can't take it to the same spots I've been fishing for 20+ years because the water is tainted. That's enough for me to say FBP.
