Phillips Petroleum Co. was incorporated in 1917. After discovery of Texas’ huge panhandle gas field in 1918 and the Hugoton Field to its north in Kansas, Phillips became increasingly involved in developing the natural gas industry. In 1927, the company’s gasoline was being tested on Hwy. 66 in Oklahoma. When it turned out that the car reached a breakneck speed of 66 mph, the company decided to make the new fuel Phillips 66. The first Phillips 66 station was opened in 1927 in Wichita, Kansas and has been preserved by the local historical society.
.
From the late 1930s until the 1960s, Phillips employed registered nurses as “highway hostesses”, who made periodic visits to Phillips 66 stations within their regions. The women inspected station restrooms to ensure they were well cleaned and stocked. They also served as ambassadors for the company by directing motorists to suitable dining and lodging facilities.
.
This gas pump shows .21/gallon, and prices stayed around that amount from the late 20s through the mid 40s.
