Update on Saving the Union 76 Balls

Last May I reported on the efforts to save the iconic Union 76 balls which ConocoPhillips has been steadily removing from California gas stations.

My local station lost its orange ball last year. I miss it.

Jacob Soboroff of L.A. Observed's Native Intelligence reports that the "Save the 76 Ball" campaign appears to have had some influence. ConocoPhillips has agreed to help preserve up to 3 dozen of the balls by sending them to museums or elsewhere.

And now the company is considering replacing some of the orange balls with balls in the company's red color, rather than removing the spinning balls altogether.
