I seriously doubt it's a "gasoline conspiracy" or even "bike unfriendly" as much as a commonplace simple oversight, after all how many stores have designated motorcycle parking?
Instead of a petition which is oft a hostile reaction to flat & repeated refusals - have you tried simply suggesting to the management that a bike rack would be a welcome customer courtesy? Does their competition provide one?
Are there even enough bicycles strewn about to warrant one? If there are, take pics & show them, which would be the most convincing point... if not, well... personal inconveniences aside, I'd say it doesn't really matter.
