    It's heartening to see so many Fictionauts piling on to the Oil Group. Too bad we need such a group. Your strong social consciences are uplifting in these stressful times. Send your work. We need to hear each other's voices...

    Hey Susan, thanks for the invite. Funny this should come up. I've been toying with a story about our local gas station - yes, a BP. It's owned by this very nice Indian couple and about 6 months ago a Super Wawa went up down the road and suddenly they weren't the only act in town. BP decided to renovate, but instead of treating Raj and his wife fairly they instead tried to break the lease, refused to repair the computers when they went down, stopped delivering fuel and threw a big Philly law firm at them, all in an attempt to get rid of them and install a new franchise owner. I'm saving their best (and most disgusting) tactic for the story.
