Fueling Up To Sneak Away?

You all are quite familiar with this.....the feel-good, we're-in-this-together advertisements seen day in and day out from BP. After ruining the waters, wildlife, beaches, and livelihood of thousands of people in the beautiful Gulf if Katrina wasn't enough. 

Seems like the fairy tale is wearing a little thin. 

My husband is an avid motorcycle rider: the Old Coots Riders, NOT the Hell's Angels. At three different BP stations around East Tennessee, he stopped to fill up...we have had a BP card for decades. All three stations were changed to Exxon, Mobil, or some private concern. When he asked what was going on these owners said that they were told at various business meetings that they had to pick another company to go with and change the name. BP WAS GETTING OUT OF THE GAS STATION BUSINESS IN ALL STATES BELOW THE MASON-DIXON LINE. All behind the scenes, no fanfare.....

Do not know what to make of this, but I can guess. Haven't been able to co-orborate up to this point.
