What's the old saying, lay down with dogs and you'll get fleas? BP (along with other big oil companies) has been gouging consumers for years at the pump, and showing record profits. Now they're screwing up the entire Gulf region's eco-system and its' residents. I have no sympathy for them.
Unfortunately, small business owners like the gas station owners will get caught up in the fallout. But, when you have those big green "BP" signs all over your station, people will avoid your store, since the profits funnel up the chain to a company they now despise like never before. Ce la vie.
