Wow, be glad you closed your account now before you ever got hit with a fraudulent charge. Imagine how frustrating that would be to resolve?
The representative on your first call was right that stations can change brand at will. But the widespread change is rather shocking, and there might be only one left in a 10 mile radius. Possibly they are increase the price of their brand royalty, unfavorable terms, or just decided to pull out of Florida altogether (and we might not see a single BP by the end of this year).
Really I don't find gas station cards giving exceptionally good discounts, and are rather lousy. Publix has ExxonMobil gift cards for $10 off $50 every so often, so you're getting 20% off plus the 2%-5% cashback you get from your credit card. Also, there's a very close gas station near us that is the cheapest overall in our area on Pembroke/Park Rd. Plus, if you use a Mobil gift card you get $0.06 off every gallon, which makes it well worth the drive. Not to mention it's one of the few ways to redeem Plenti points (beware that if you redeem Plenti points, you need to check your receipt to make sure the gift card has a $0 balance before throwing it away - or reinsert the card into the reader and cancel the sale).
