It has more than 1,300 gas stations in the western part of the United States. ARCO was originally formed by the merger of East Coast–based Atlantic Refining and California-based Richfield Oil Corporation in 1966. A subsequent merger in 1969 brought in Sinclair Oil Corporation. It became a subsidiary of UK-based BP in 2000 through its BP West Coast Products LLC (BPWCP) affiliate.On August 13, 2012, it was announced that Tesoro would purchase ARCO and its refinery for $2.5 billion."
