  • No, not at all.

    Those are largely franchised and may not even source their gasoline from BP. The only thing that does is hurt small businesses.

  • No, that only hurts the little guy trying to make a living, not the Corporation.

  • I hate to say it, but I have no idea where my gasoline comes from. I always fill up at Costco. Does anyone know where their gas comes from?

  • I'm not boycotting them, there's just not one that's all that close to me. Besides, I get a .10 per gallon discount at King Soopers gas station right down the street when I use my Sooper card.

  • No. The oil companies share pipelines so if you fill up at Conoco you could still be getting BP fuel. Those who are boycotting are only boycotting the franchise owners they are not doing anything to BP they will still make their billions. They were probably insured for all that oil that leaked and are making out like bandits right now.

  • I have been refusing to buy gas from BP for years. I saw a list of gas stations that buy oil from countries that are friendly to terrorists, and BP was on the list.

  • not boycotting I just never use it. I have always used a big gas chain here where I live called Quick Trip or QT for short.

  • Not necessarily...if all their pumps are busy, Yes! i'd go to another station; its about convenience and price for me..not some huge british corporation.
