Lowest Gas Prices -- Found!

With marriage two months ago came a new neighborhood.

A new neighborhood means a new grocery store, new gas station – well, you get the picture.

So, I went to the Internet to find one of the sites that identifies the lowest gas prices in various areas. I hoped to find the lowest prices near our house, near our church as well as on typical daily driving routes.

At the same time, I was toying with the idea of not purchasing BP gas as a protest about the oil spill mess and the mess-of-a-cleanup process.

I found the gas station closest to our house – but it had “BP” next to it, so I kept looking.

While looking, I told The Duppster that our closest gas station carried BP gas. He said he didn’t think so; he thought it was Shell. I responded that maybe it had changed because according to the updated site on the Internet, it was BP.

The next closest station also carried BP. Continuing my search, I found yet another that carried BP and still another. I wondered how in the world, with what that company was going through, it could have the lowest prices in all of these nearby places.

The next day, I avoided those stations and went elsewhere to fill up the car’s gas tank.

It wasn’t until several days later that it hit me: the “BP” on the web site stood for “best price.”

I also considered boycotting BP until I realized that BP wouldn't notice. But the local owners and employees would. Those people I care about...and I know you do, too.

I boycott BP and Exxon. I don't know if I am hurting the local dealers or not but simply cannot buy gas from a company that is so irresponsible.
