Would you buy gas at this station?

Would I buy BP gas? So far, yes. It looks like they are doing the right things. I guess we'll find out later.

I cannot tell a lie. Yes, I would buy gas at this station if I needed it. However, I would be more likely to purchase coffee or a coke and chips because the business owner does not deserve to be punished for the misdeeds of Big Oil.

Kate said...

Yes, I would buy gas there for the simple reason that I would not want to create problems for the owner of the station. They're the ones who will hurt if we boycott bp.

Yes. It could have happened to anyone.

And when Amoco/Standard Oil (founded I believe by Rockefeller) soiled the coasts of France for months and months, no one boycotted them as far as I can remember and it took us YEARS to obtain a semblance of damages. But then I was very young at the time.

We don't have BP gas stations here but I wouldn't be surprised if they supply some of our "local" ones (which aren't completely local).

I'm really praying that they manage to keep that plug on.

too far from here..... :)

re your query on my post - no the skies are all gray now laden with rain!

B SQUARED said...

Absolutely, BP divested themselves of their stations years ago. Citgo are the ones I would avoid.

Courtney said...

$2.55 when you pay cash or bp credit card.. interesting.. I've seen stations that advertise cheaper prices for cash, but never as their main sign price.

Birdman said...

Yes... and hopefully that sign keeps 'falling'. Ha!

Daryl said...

Not even if I owned a car

Halcyon said...

I would and I have.

Small City Scenes said...

Well I like the 2.55 price as it is 3.00 plus here. But I probably wouldn't buy at BP. (sorry station owners) Although who knows where the oil comes from where I buy my gas. interesting! MB

VP said...

I don't own a car, but I can't see why not. They need money to repay the damage done.

Paula said...

Probably not since it's about 3000 miles away.
I do like the roller coaster look to that road though with the little car perched at the top.

Francisca said...

My thought was the same as VP... When I learned that BP doesn't even own the station, all the more it makes no sense to boycott. Besides, is BP any more evil than any other oil company? VP has the answer: don't drive at all. But oooh... that's a hard one for me.

Joy said...

We avoid BP - mainly because they're more expensive than Tesco or Shell or any other gas station (or as they say here, petrol station).

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

I heard they're going to be changing their name. What does it matter? Big oil is all the same.
