GULF SHORES, Ala. — Finding tar balls linked to the BP oil spill isn't difficult on some Gulf Coast beaches, but the company and the government say it isn't common enough to keep sending out the crews that patrolled the sand for three years in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi.

BP is so full of BS. Their TV commercials twist the truth of the matter into a pretzel. They proudly claim to be spending tons of their money on the coastal area but we know that is only because they have to. Then, the happy smiley reps with rose colored glasses on talk about how tourism has doubled. Doubled means nothing when it could mean from 10,000 to 20,000 or 2 to 4 people. Those TV actors are the biggest sellouts of all time.

I haven't filled up at a BP station since their negligence, and won't until they finish the clean up work.

The BP ads touting the glorious beaches in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana are a hoot! If the beaches are so clean, why don't they show all the tourists on them? And, why would they have to advertise if tourism has doubled. Doubled from when? What's it like in the waterbed? Oily?

My entire family and I NEVER fill up at a BP stations. We have boycotted BP and its stations and don't ever plan on giving them our business again.

With social networking the way it is we should be boycotting different oil companies each week. What would it be like if the majority of the country stopped buying gas from certain stations each week. Perhaps we would not be at the oil companies mercy.
