Refuse to ever patronize Chevron after that violated the agreement on my gas card many years ago.

I usually go to United Oil or ARCO, primarily because they're the cheapest near my house.

I try to patronize Valero and BP since they do not import oil from the middle east.

Still bitter about that whole Exxon Valdeez thing. I don't mind if you screw something up, but at least own up to it.

I have a Chevron card, but sometimes I'll go to Arco and even Costco.

Arco took 3 YEARS to verify they received a business payment for $1500 (AFTER reporting my business to all credit agencies and signing the account over to 4 collection agencies); the manager of the Valero station down the street used our business card to pay for her friend's gas for over 8 months and Valero refused to credit me back until I threatened to sue; Shell's gas makes my car run like crap; Exxon/Mobile is still on my poop list for the Alaska spill ... Chevron is the only company that seems to give a damn but their prices are 5 to 10 cents higher than everyone elses and their credit card APR is close to 30%.
Soooooo...I pay cash at Thrifty or Union 76. lol
