If you decide to boycott one brand of gasoline which one would that be? My choice would be Citgo because of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

I would boycott Shell. They are owned partially by Arabs, and they get the highest percentage of their crude from the Middle East.

I simply prefer avoiding all station boycotts. I believe I get a greater perception when comparing. Safe travels.

A unified front would be the only way to get a message to the gub'ment about lowering prices. A boycott could work if the Truckers joined in. Once they stop for 10 days, gas prices will drop about 15 cents. Boycotting is the only way anything is going to get done nowadays but everyone have to be committed to the cause. No punking out. We start with Shell, then, Chevron, lastly ARCO.

if we are going boycott any one, why ? we should only buy gas from our own. only two company has US Gas Valero & Sunoco. and Valero will mix there gas @ terminal. I only buy Sunoco if I don't see Sunoco then I will find Valero.

I don't buy Citgo, BP or any Chevron. All three are ripoffs.
I also don't buy at Arco.

I agree with Mikeyl. Look for the lowest price and patronize the stations that have the lowest price. The others will get the message or sell less gasoline.

If you think "Big Oil" is making too much money then stop using petroleum products. But, that would mean you would virtually have to stop shopping at any store. For all products are either derived from or transported by petroleum products.

So, lets forget all this boycott stuff and move on to something more useful. Like, posting more prices!

I boycott gas stations all the time... I choose the one with the lowest gas price in the area I am traveling in to fill up.

So, I choose not to fill up at higher-priced stations.

Is that not what we are all on GasBuddy for???

Boycotts do not work. You have to USE less gas to make a difference. Until we are willing to stop driving so much, share rides to work or the store, walk somewhere or ride a bike, make our kids use the bus to get to school, or the public transit ourselves to get to work, nothing will change.

Just curious, other than the fact that they're a british company, why does everyone hate bP so much? Is it because equipment they leased from someone else malfuntioned? Do you choose to hate them more than Exxon/Mobil because more time has passed since the Exxon Valdez spilled all of that oil of the coast of Alaska?

I avoid all the majors if I can. I use FasGas (Parkland Oil), or UFA... We are soon getting CEntex, and I will check them out.

BTW, Mom'sNo1Taxi, Petro-Canada was sold to Suncor (aka Sunoco) a few years back. they only continue it as a separate brand to avoid anti-trust laws.
