FINA



Petrofina was a chain of service stations founded on February 25, 1920 in Belgium by Hector Carlier, his brother Ferdinand Carlier, and Aloys Van de Vyvere as an Antwerp-based group called Compagnie Financière Belge des Pétroles, but changed to PetroFina to reflect their telegraph address name. Petrofina merged with Total S.A. of France to form TotalFina and with Elf in 2000 to form TotalFinaElf. The company's current name is Total S.A. (since 2003).
 
FINA started to expand their operations into the United States in 1956, with the acquisition of the Wichita Falls, Texas-based Panhandle Oil Company, a firm which operates an oil refinery and marketed gasoline to service stations in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. American Petrofina, as the United States operation was called, purchased several oil companies, the largest being the Cosden Oil Company from W.R. Grace in 1963, which gave FINA a very large chain of service stations throughout Texas and New Mexico, along with an oil refinery in Big Spring, Texas. All the FINA locations in the United States were converted to ALON locations in 2012, upon ALON USA's acquisition of FINA's American assets in 2000. Some FINA locations were cobranded with 7-Eleven and Stuckeys. FINA had locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Arizona and the southern portion of Colorado.

FINA was noted for its popular "pink air" ads in the 1960s
