How many will be filling up at BP this weekend?
 
I know there's not much I can do as a recreational fisherman that will cause BP to lose money, however I will never fill any thing I own again with fuel/oil from bp. How do you guys in the Gulf Coast area feel about this?

BP pulled out of La. some time last year. I bought from them whenever I could because of their importing policy. I'd do it again if I had the chance. If they come back, I'll use them.

I wont touch their fuel and I shorted their stock. Wammy!

Buy BP gas? No, I’d be worried about getting water in my tank.

Screw it, I still own 1000 shares of BP stock. Not going to sell now. So I might as well buy their fuel.

No sense in not buying BP fuel anymore. You should support the small business owners in this case, because most of the BP stations i've been in are privately owned by one individual that runs the show. You are just supporting another major business if you buy from someone else. For example all the "On The Runs" etc are all owned by one guy, you know how rich this one individual is already? I knew the lady that owned 10 Keith Co's and I assure you she was worth more than 30 million. Also when service stations buy their fuel, they typically buy it from the closest refinery. In Pascagoula the closest refinery is Chevron refinery, so it is Chevron that is making your fuel, not BP. The only thing thats different within the fuels is the additives the refinery places in them. And again wasn't it another company doing the actual drilling?? BP just hired them......

How many of you buy Exxon.....they F'ed up pretty bad years ago (Alaska). Give it enough time, or look back far enough and everyone of them makes major mistakes. I'll judge BP by there actions over the next few months, not by this one mistake.

(BTW: very few BP stations where I live so I don't use them anyway)

I bought it in the mid 50's. Went up as high as 62 I believe. Dividend is great... $3.30

How many actually pay attention to where they buy?
I don't.

BP acquired Amoco a few years back, and around here their gas has always been a few cents more per gallon than others. I feel the Hess stations have the best prices but I like the additives Shell and Chevron have and usually buy from them. The only one I don't buy from is Citgo.

I buy from any store on the side of the road that is large enough to easily maneuver the truck and boat around in. besides, most of the stores that are ethanol free that I pass up with the boat are BP.

I hate hearing ideas like that. Anyone with economic sense knows its just a bunch of BS.

TDM 05-19-2010 09:05 PM

No CITGO at all. As far as BP, I.m going to see how this mess plays out.

Greno 05-20-2010 06:12 AM

BP has done a great job dealing with this accident in my opinion. They have opened the checkbook and have done everything they can to deal with it even though it may have been caused by the fault of others. That will come later in court.

i will fill up my truck at BP this weekend, actually both of them and every couple of days forever or until i move, just not the boat b/c they have ethanol gas and i won't run that crap. a close friend of mine owns the gas station and it happens to be a BP station. This is not the small business owners fault and HE shouldn't be punished. things are bad enough down here already. Now i will preface that he is going to switch to Shell as soon as he can get all of the paper work done, AND THEN i will quit using BP:thumbsup:
