Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Back in the long long ago, there used to be gasoline brands, and gasoline commercials ("Exxon puts a tiger in your tank!"). For some reason that fell out of favor. Might it be because gasoline is commoditized and comes just from a single source? I mean, they've managed to take premium prices for so called "green electricity".

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

I suspect the generalisation of the motor vehicle culture along with a prolonged period of cheap oil changed the nature of the marketing (as profit margins fell).
