Every time I go into town, there are still people buying gas at the 2 BP stations in Peru! WHY?? You have NO right to call yourself an American if you are still buying gas at BP. Obviously you have no concern for what this arrogant greedy foreign oil company has done to the people of the Gulf region, the ecosystem of OUR nation and it will take generations for the gulf to heal if it ever even does. Shame on you for patronizing those 2 BP Stations you are ignorant of the issues that affect your fellow countrymen and your nation. It's time for people to stop being so disconnected and start giving a crap about things that aren't just about themselves.

Gee, how about the dozens of jobs that rely on the local BP stations? Are we to penalize local people who are unlucky enough to own a franchise with BP? Shame on you for taking such a complicated issue and reducing it to a simplistic rant against the poor, working class people you seem to care so much about. Quit watching CNN and read a couple of books or do some research before you shoot your mouth off. By the way, do you use petroleum products or are you unAmerican also?

Ok genius, we will all boycott BP and when they go bankrupt we the taxpayers can foot the bill for this mess. What a great idea!

That explains it. It is because of people like you two that this country is in the shapes it's in. Disconnected and worried only about the profit margins of a multi-billion dollar company rather than that of your own countrymen and land.

It is NO wonder though, look at he population of Peru. It is obvious that the intelligence level in Peru being so inadequately low that they could comprehend the consequences to their actions. These people can't see beyond the 2 foot lawn in their trailer parks let alone the big picture. It matters NOT if you are rich or poor, you still have to purchase gas, so why would one choose to buy fuel from a company that has committed one of the worst acts of environmental terrorism in this countries history when there are a dozen other stations one could buy fuel from?

This kind of ignorance is to be expected though, look at he class of people that Peru residents descended from....CARNIES.

Not from Peru and have never lived in Peru. If you are so concerned maybe you should also post a list of the gas stations that buy from BP that don't use the BP logo. That should keep your dumb*ss off Topix spreading your stupidity for a couple weeks.

BP stations are privately owned, so if you boycott them, you aren't going to hurt the big guns, just the small business owner who may be just like yourself, striving to make a living. They had no way of knowing BP would screw up big time but since they have socked their entire livelyhood into their stations, they will be the ones to suffer if boycotted.

have you thought about what will happen if BP goes bankrupt? We need BP to stay solvent to clean this mess up and pay those hurt by this disaster. By all means, BUY BP GAS. Otherwise, Obama will be writing out more checks we can't cover to pay the bill.

I must take exception to the comment about the "Obvious" intelligence level of people in Peru, IN. The only obvious thing is that the writer obviously is incorrect. As for purchasing gas from the BP station, we should not boycott the station and ultimately add to the unemployment rolls and pay additional taxes when the business fails. If you are going to take this type of stand then perhaps you would consider boycotting all businesses that sell products produced by foreign owned businesses. I doubt that there would be any place to purchase anything we need. Life would be very difficult. Think about it...what can you buy that is not related in some way to a foreign business. Oh by the way who really owns our national debt? Hope they never call in the loan.

Rather than justify ignorant actions, there are still the trolls that focus in on a simple typo. Shameful.

The bottom line is that NO AMERICAN should be buying gas from BP. If the station owners were concerned with losing profits from boycott's they could do the right thing and stop selling BP products.

There is NO excuse.

There is nothing shameful about pointing out defective logic. It is not about justifying ignorant actions, whatever that means, it is about using reason instead of political rhetoric as a basis foundation for thoughts and actions. Black and white solutions to gray problems rarely work the way they are intended.

Pull your head out of your posterior and look at the problem from a logical view, not a political one. If you still think BP deserves a boycott, fine, boycott them. Don't however, insinuate that anyone who disagrees with you is a disloyal American.

And just so you know, I don't think you are a troll, just another intellectual lightweight trying to justify an unjustifiable argument. If you are going to get into a gunfight, you better bring something besides your Swiss Army knife.

It's called a free country.... Just because they choose to buy gast there does not mean they cannot be Americans. What about the government that didn't do the proper inspections... How many companies do you know that get by with stuff because they can and are allowed to? Get a grip, don't be so JUDGEMENTAL...

I buy all my gas from BP, just because they made a little mistake out there in the Gulf is not reason to punish them at the pump.

BP is our future, although they are British, they will help rid us of our dependence on foreign oil.

Well, I suppose you are one that drives 60 in a 55 mile an hour zone because you know you can get away with it.

Where do you think BP got the idea in the first place.

For your own safety you should bring a machine gun.

I don't know what you're talking about, the beer that I drink and the cigarettes that I smoke are made in the USA, so what else is there?

Oh, yes, I forgot, the eight "Big Macs" and 8 large fries that I consume everyday are made in the USA
