Customers show loyalty to local BP stations
By Tara Ramsey Across the country, many people have been fuming over the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by holding protests and boycotting their local BP gas stations. Not so much in Charlotte. BP station owners here say their customers have been loyal even after the largest oil spill in United States history. Todd Bonner of Columbia, S.C., said he didn’t consider the brand name when stopping for gasoline at a Fort Mill, S.C., BP station owned by Times Oil Corp. Friday morning while on his way into Charlotte for work.
