Unfortunately, local BP owners made a choice. They could have been firefighters or police officers if they cared about personal glory, but the fact is that they chose to sell gas; they tapped into that market, knowing it was profitable, and knowing that it was a risk. As consumers, we ALWAYS have a choice. Voting isn't where your voice is heard, money is. Like it or not, we all need gas, but as consumers, the best thing we can do for our economy and ecosystem is research business policies and the effect certain companies make on our world. BP screwed up-- big time. If you want to support BP, buy their gas. If you don't, don't. Either way, you're making a statement, like it or not. Everything you buy makes a statement.
