Not asking for any sympathy for the league leader in EPA violations (90%+ of all in the last 10 years). Just saying, its isn't a small amount to pay. I'd love to know where Congress has been all this time as it's been cutting lease licenses to BP. How come Royal Dutch (Shell) and Chevron seem to be using the better of two well designs when BP (number one commodity producer) is using the cheapest version almost routinely?

And it is minimally sickening to hear British representatives say "please say BP, not British Petroleum since 49% of the company is owned by Americans".

Also, kills me to say this.but., I have no love for the little man on this one: Franchised BP stations say 'don't boycott us' - CHARLESTON, SC NEWS - LIVE 5 WCSC Breaking News, Weather, Sports

Looks like they should call Shell, Chevron, Exxon (yes, Exxon) or some other franchise ASAP.

An unwavering defender of those I see worth protecting.
