Chevron Gas Stations
Chevron Corporation is a multinational energy corporation with headquarters based in San Ramon, California and locations in over 180 countries around the world.
was formerly known as Standard Oil Co. (California) and in 1984 forged a merger with Gulf Oil
in what was to be known as the largest merger in history back then. Many of Gulf's operating subsidiaries were stripped from the company and some of the stations along with an Eastern United States refinery were sold off. Shortly thereafter SoCal took on the name Chevron Corporation.
In the years following this name change Chevron managed to acquire other established companies including Texaco
, Unocal and Atlas Energy
. In 2005 Chevron decided to drop the Texaco moniker and return to the Chevron name. The company still owns the trademark rights to the Texaco brand gasoline.
Chevron ended retail operations in the Mid Atlantic US in July, 2010. During this period the Chevron
and Texaco names were removed from 1,100 gas stations in states like Delaware, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., and parts of Tennessee.
Even with this apparent setback the company still owns approximately 24,000 retail stations across 84 countries throughout the world. This approximate includes stations of their affiliate companies.
Chevron sought to set themselves apart through the introduction of Techron technology. This gasoline additive is included in their gasoline and is based on more than 30 years of product research and development. The additive helps to keep engine parts like the intake valves, fuel injectors and combustion chambers as clean as possible the result being lower emissions and improved performance.
Like many gas stations across the country Chevron has developed a few gas card options to offer consumers additional savings and rewards for their fuel purchases. The Chevron Basic Gas Card comes with no annual fees and offers consumers $0.10 back on their first 500 gallons of fuel purchased. The monthly statements provided will help consumers better manage their gas budget.
The Premium option includes a $20 annual fee and offers rewards like discounts on lodgings, airline travel, car rentals and American Express
traveler's checks. Access to the Chevron Travelers Club is also included with this premium card and gives members the opportunity to save even more.>Recommended Chevron Credit Card
