This is a shame for the small retailer. The problem for most Americans is this is a disaster that we can't really do anything about. Natural disasters are something we deal with quite well. We react with saddness and horror but this causes anger. We need something to lash out at because, rightfully so, we know this didn't have to happen.As far as this movement to boycott BP, thats an emotional reaction to the problem. The only thing that will be hurt by doing that is to cause the independent BP station owner to suffer.
I know it's tough on the little guy but I can't look at that logo without anger. I won't donate this time either. BP needs to dig deep and pay up.
