As oil continues to leak into the Gulf of Mexico, Americans are mobilizing against company that is responsible for the spill. But is boycotting a local BP gas station the best response?

Via CNN, WINK-TV in Fort Myers, Florida takes a look at how not every gas station with a BP logo is affiliated directly with the company.
