 In Steve Butler

By Steve Butler

IT SEEMS THAT by about the mid 1960s or so American toy makers had issued a toy tanker bearing the name of virtually every brand of gasoline (a.k.a. gasolene) sold in this country. Consider the following list of brands, a list that is clearly incomplete:

American
BP
Chevron
Marathon
Citgo
Esso
Exxon
Gulf
Mobil
Phillips 66
Shell
Sinclair
Standard
Texaco
Union 76
Cities Service
Sunoco
