It hurts the local franchises of BP more than BP itself. It will do NOTHING to fix the problem. I will not boycott because boycotts of oil companies have never and will never work.

Not that I use BP but boycotting them is just stupid because the only one being hurt are the independent operators of which there are a lot of. BP needs to be held responsable for all the damages plus fines for being neglegent. I also hold our government responsable because they allowed not just BP but other companies to get away with safety violations that could have prevented the accidents and saved lives.

Boycotting BP? Where do you begin? BP is a major refiner of not only gasoline for its own name brand, but it also refines gasoline for other small-brands, as well as heating oil and diesel. So, where does the gas come from that you buy at Get-go, Speedway or Sheetz or Pilot, or Flying J?

Lets face it. We are at the mercy of the oil drilling and refining industry because our transportation is so dependent upon their products. We are them, they are us, we demand low prices, they commit the least amount of money to safety, and it goes on-and-on.

If consumers had the option to select the price and where their money would go at the pump, what are the odds consumers would select $3.00 a gallon and "safe drilling methods" as their first choices? My guess is consumers would select $2.55 a gallon with their pump dollars going to "save the caribou in Alaska".

valley and useless - You all won't boycott because you're fascists.

You confuse capitalism with consumerism. The greatest example of capitalism would be Americans taking their hard earned dollar elsewhere.

Sure it would hurt a few local vendors but shame on them for staying in business with a company that values profit over safety (11 of their workers died) and is attempting to salvage the oil in the spill rather than stopping the leak and cleaning up their mess.
