A Facebook group and Reverend Jesse Jackson are calling for a boycott of BP.  Rev. Jackson led a group of protesters outside a Chicago BP station this week. Jackson and the head of the Illinois Sierra Club are accusing the oil giant of hiking prices at the pump to pay for the gulf spill. The Facebook group has over 200 thousand followers.
