Crown Central Petroleum, commonly known as Crown, is an American Oil Company that has flourished in Baltimore since the early 20th century until its recent decline due to rebranding.


Crown Central Petroleum Company or Crown, first began in 1917 in Harris County, Texas when the New Crown Oil and Refining Company's Number 3 well struck oil.


During the summer of 2006, many stations began to disappear. All but about 20 stations were rebranded to either Texaco, Chevron Corporation, or Royal Dutch Shell gas stations. This is because the company sold these stations about two years ago, as reported in the Baltimore Sun.
