Can anyone tell me what the primary gasoline brands were for Southern California in the 50's-60's.
Just Curious.
Thanks,
John

Intersting question. Union seems to be a popular early brand from Spokane.

They may not have been a "primary"brand,but I think Whiting Brothers had a significant presence on 66 out in the desert during your time frame. The California guys will know.
