Hess Hauls in Holiday Spirit

Hess toy trucks were sold at Hess stations starting in 1964, after Leon Hess updated his father’s oil delivery service in Asbury Park to create the beginnings of what would become and oil and gas giant. Hess sold its gas stations to Marathon Petroleum in 2014. Since Hess stations have become Speedway stations, with the exception of a mall kiosk effort in 2015, shoppers have had to buy the trucks online! Collectors and families alike have scooped up the toys, decked in Hess green-and-white, at the start of each holiday season!
