Shell Oil Company began in 1912 and is now known as one of the nation’s best and largest oil and natural gas producers. Founded by the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, the company is known for innovations and striving for only high-quality products. In fact, Shell was the world’s first plant to use natural gas to make ammonia. Today, Shell has more than 25,000 branded gas stations across the United States.
In the 1930s, Shell was among a group of gas producers pushing for lower-priced gasoline. Green Streak was known as Shell’s third grade gasoline.
