Re: Oil companies
There is a book titled "The Gas Station In America"
The title including the series it is from is: The Gas Station in America
(Creating the North American Landscape)
that as I recall
listed all/most of the beginnings and mergers of oil companies up until 1990
so. Sorry, I don't remember author
The author is John A. Jakle, Keith A. Sculle
The ISBN number for the book is 0801869196
Sorry couldn't find out who the publisher was.
There was a reprint of the book done in 2002.
It is available from both Amazon and Barnes & Noble (used books)---you can
always check to see if others have it available.
