My husband and I are wondering why did the bp gas station close down. We usually always use bp gas in our car and hate to have to switch. Does anyone know what happened?

As with all BP gas stations the company was squeezing the dealers out. They charge too much for rent and nickle and dime you for all sorts of fees. The average gas station has about $30,000 of overhead and if pumping out 185000 gallons a month leaves a profit of about $500 a week. Too much work and headaches. The only ones making out are the company, a rep for the same gas station working for BP clears about $1600 a week with benefits and stock options.

There are 3 or 4 that have closed down near me in past year. I have heard that they push the stations owners to the edge.

We had one close in Ionia and I heard of a couple others nearby. It is a real mystery since they seemed to be doing very well. What is REALLY strange to me is that it appears the BP Gulf Oil Disaster happened AFTER many BP stations closed.

Planned? Hoping for Government bailout? Too odd.
