Having a ball from the beginning

California based Union Oil first introduced 76® gasoline in 1932. The iconic orange ball made its debut in 1962 as gas station signage. Shortly after, in 1967, stations began distributing the popular "antenna balls" which are still seen on cars today.

Rooted in California

76® was founded by Lyman Stewart of the Union Oil Company of California or "Unocal." The brand quickly became a landmark across the West Coast, from Los Angeles to Spokane.

Driving the Future

From upgraded stations to TOP TIER® gas at more than 1,800 retail locations across the country, 76® is committed to being on the driver's side.
