One of my most conservative friends, who is also an avid hiker, and
camper, etc., basically takes this tack. I remember being in the car
with him, we needed gas, and I spotted an Exxon - I went to pull in and
he looked at me aghast -- "You're gonna go to Exxon!?!?". Quite
surprised me. His whole basis was on the Alaska spill. This was maybe
6-7 years ago.

I have a feeling enmity toward Exxon stems from that spill.
