    Chevron is still a separate company and is one of the ones gobbling up the others.

    Chevron bought Gulf oil in the 1980s.

    BP is another oil company that has been gobbling up others.  ARCO was bought by BP several years ago.  They still have Arco-branded gasoline stations in California, but I think even the Carson refinery has been rebranded to BP.  Arco was one of the big players in Alaska and the Alaska pipeline.
