ST. JOSEPH, Mich. —
The anti-BP sentiment now reaches the Michigan shore. A small group of protesters picketed outside station on Niles and Napier.
Following the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, British Petroleum received the brunt of the blame. As the gulf's impact worsened, patience, for the company seems to run on empty.
"BP has hurt, destroyed, or killed so much down there," said Rick Xaver, a local protester.
As people filled up with BP oil, an anti-BP fueled backlash has occurred online, with a national effort to boycott local BP gas stations Wednesday.
A protest was scheduled outside the American Gas and Oil owned location in St. Joseph, Mich.
"We are not BP, we are a licensed BP dealer," said Paul Piersma, District Manager for the station. "We sell BP gas that's our connection to BP."
