  •  These stations are typically franchised (7+ / 0-)

    The owners, who have nothing to do with the spill, are just trying to make ends meet and are caught in the middle here.

    The gas station owners have to buy their gas from BP at a fixed price. But they are responsible for selling it.

    As usual with these corporate entities, the little guy takes all the risk, and the corporation gets all the reward.

    They are the ones probably taking the loss, not BP.
