Standard Oil Company - Gas and Oil Company History
Mobil (Socony, Vacuum Oil, Magnolia Petroleum, Gargoyle) - Standard Oil Company of New York, Socony, was founded in 1882 as the administrative divions of Standard Oil. In 1918 they purchased Magnolia Petroleum and General Petroleum in 1926, and restarted oil exploration after the breakup of Standard in 1911 left Socony without crude oil. When Socony partnered with Vacuum Oil in 1931, they used Vacuum's "Mobilgas" flying horse trademark. They replaced the Magnolia brand with Mobilgas in 1934, and by the end of WWII they expanded the Mobilgas brand name to all affiliated companies. In 1962 Mobilgas was replaced with Mobil as the brand. They renamed the company in 1955 to Socony-Mobil, and Mobil Oil Company in 1966.
