Since 1971 McPherson Oil (McPherson) has gone from one person to 275, one white truck to 130 yellow ones, from 70,000 gallons of gas a month to 12,000,000 per month, from 55 gallons of lubricants to 15,000,000 gallons, from one year to 40. In that time McPherson, headquartered in the Trussville community of Birmingham, Alabama, has grown into one of the largest independent fuel and lubricant distributors in the country. Charles “Mac” McPherson started it all back in Oneonta with one used tank wagon. “I was a horrible truck driver, I couldn’t change the gears well, I couldn’t maneuver the truck well, but I didn’t have much choice. It was me, myself and I in the beginning.”
