It's NOT British Petroleum!!!! It's BP. To invest in BP you buy SHARES just like any other company. BP shares are traded in London on the London Stock Exchange (BP..L) about 374p each and also as ADRs (BP.NYSE) at about $31.71 (there are 6 BP shares in 1 ADR).You need to sign up with a stockbroker or try your Bank.

If you are not going to trade regularly, your bank can buy for you, without opening a trading account; if you have the funds in your account. Check out the approximate price first,(so that you don't look stupid) and work out how many you want to buy. Not worth investing less than £500, because of dealing costs.
