Dos and Don'ts of Oil Spill Action: How You can Really Help - MNN

"The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is a disaster that cries for action. Fight the urge to race to the Gulf and instead put your energy into these activities."

I am going to disagree with one thing in this article, as many of the commenters have already. I DO think we should boycott BP GAS. As one commenter mentioned, gas station owners make considerably more profit for themselves through the items in their shops, which are usually owned by a separate corporation than the gas provider. Profits from buying gas largely end up going back to the oil companies.

But DO boycott the GAS FOR YOUR CARS.
