Have you noticed a decline in business at local BP stations?

It is a busy weekend here in Minnesota - the fishing opener. I went to a friend's house that is about 50 miles Northwest of Minneapolis and the roads were packed with people heading up North for the weekend. I was keeping an eye on the gas stations along the way, and noticed that the Holiday, Super America & Shell stations were extremely busy. Whereas the BP stations I drove past were empty or only had 1 car filling up. It may have just been a coincidence, but I would like to believe that people are making a decision not to patronize these stores.

Have you noticed any difference in BP/Amoco/AMPM/Arco stations in your area?
(Reminder: The links on the right hand column will let you see the products under the BP brand name and nearby locations.)

Please comment and let us know where you are and if you've seen a difference.

  1. What about the prices and service? To be honest I boycotted BP long before this ever happened because they are overpriced and downright rude at our local store.

    Not saying this isn't a reason, just saying there have already been many reasons to not go to BP.
