By the early 1930's Sinclair had bought or merged with:
Cudahy
Union Petroleum (not Union Oil)
Puritain Oil
Parco
Rio Grande
Keith
Prairie Pipeline
the eastern marketing of Richfield.
There were other aquisitions as well.

Harry Sinclair was also involved with the re-organization of the western Richfield operation.

Sinclair had extensive holdings in Europe and Mexico as well. The European operation was sold off prior to WWII.

The war years were good to Sinclair. The war effort required new lubricants and aviation gas which Sinclair (and others) provided at a nice profit.

Sinclair's expansion continued throughout the 30's and early 40's. By the late 40's stations were closing in rural areas and more stations were being built in stronger markets in the cities.

Harry Sinclair stepped down at the end of 1948. He had done a great job of growing his company, but left two major problems for his successors. Debt had been a problem from the early days, and was still a problem in 1948. The other problem was more important. Sinclair hadn't kept up with the production end of the business. By the mid 50's they were buying as much as 60% of their crude oil from other producers.
