You are not hurting BP one bit by not buying Gas from there stations. The person you are hurting is the local owner of that BP station. Watch a gas truck some day they all come from a local fill station and go to several different stations with the same truck. When gas comes in to the fill stations they unload from barges or unnamed trucks into a single tank.

Sealark +1 I don't think that hurting local small business owners is the right choice here either. It's funny how some people think that is the right course of action.

Only the people who work in the oil/gas industry are so outspoken and confident that there is no problems...and defend BP always trying to prove people wrong.
Why? Because they want to drill/explore etc.., bitch about their field taking a hit with the moratorium...screw ALL the other folks that are, probably triple in size to whats in the oil field, who have lost their jobs or livelihoods for the same amount of time.

I understand that we all need help, but when you compare "Ixtoc-1, natural leaking" other bs or try to accuse people of being hypocrites because they use petroleum products and get gas and that everything in the gulf is okay other than the"moratorium needs lifting" is selfish....If you loved our waters, and are even from the gulf coast then I doubt you would be so eager to defend BP/Spill when it comes to the unknowns such as damage to to fish eggs/fry ,shellfish etc.. it's obvious who works out there and who doesn't ...But rest assured you folks are not the only ones that rely on the GOM for your paycheck.

I love our coast, our waters, and the quality of life that I am able to live due to the oil industry. I have worked in the oil field, on charter boats, and my family operated local tackle shops and charter boats. I am not going to defend BP for their wrongdoings, but I will defend the industry as a whole.

I'm asking everyone I know to send me photos and videos of any of the stuff washing up on our shores and I'll keep putting them here for as long as it takes to keep people accountable for the cleanup!

This lady sent this to me this morning that she took on her daily walk along the beach. She lives in Seaspray and said these were washing up all over the place. She called the Coast Guard to report it and they were supposed to send someone out.

I do not defend BP in any way,and yes I do work in the oil field.I also worked in the charter industery here in Pensacola for 16 years as a deckhand and a captain.I grew up on the beach surfing, I love to fish and dive every chance I get,my family were all either comercial fishermen or boat captains right here.It is very unfortunate as to what happened for all of us! All I am saying is by not buying gas from a BP station you hurt the individual owner .It wasn't his fault as to what happened.Rather than bicker back and forth between each other we should come together as a team and help to fix what has been done .So reguardless weather or not I work in the oilfield or work in the drycleaners on the corner or the BP station up the street this is our home all of our homes.I don't like to see my backyard ruined any more than you do !

And furthermore I have not tried to prove people wrong just state the facts that I know.The pictures that were posted on page one of the plane and boat spraying are not Coast Guard as stated.Yes coast guard did spray but that's not them.Just like the other post that said they were still spraying ,they're not.Just trying to share what I know so others will be informed rather than talking out thier [email protected]@. I do not feel that everything in the gulf is okay,and could care less if you think I do!
