History

Petrofina (known as FINA) was created in 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium by two brothers. The company grew over the next 30 years and in 1956, expanded to the U.S. when it acquired the Panhandle Oil Company in Texas. Throughout the next few years, it acquired several other small oil companies including Cosden Oil Company in 1963.

The service stations FINA purchased were rebranded and the company introduced their “Pink Air” campaign. FINA offered its customers Pink Air that would keep their tires from disintegrating, which became available at all FINA stations by 1966. By 1973, the company had expanded to include several Southeaster states (such as Florida and Georgia) and in 1984, FINA purchased thousands of service stations from Champlin Refining Company and rebranded them in Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and several other states.

In 1999, FINA merged with Total to form TotalFina, which is owned by ALNON. After the merge, FINA gas cards became ALNON gas cards.
