Only when one brand is attacked such as after an oil spill does it seem to matter. So the oil companies got smart and own more than one type of station. So no

Boycotting gas stations is a waste of time because it can't be kept up long enough to make an impact.

Boycotts can only work when there is significant buy-in by the market. On the other hand, there are so many people calling for boycotts for every imaginable reason that no one can keep up with them all, and it becomes silly. No religious fundamentalist ever came up with as many inane and unworkable laws as today's Political Correctness Ayatollahs.

Maybe not, but I have never seen one do any real good, unless everyone does it.
