PIGLIA, Melina. El ACA e YPF entre las administraciones conservadoras y el peronismo: La red nacional de estaciones de servicios. Bol. Inst. Hist. Argent. Am. Dr. Emilio Ravignani [online]. 2012, n.37, pp.143-173. ISSN 0524-9767.

The article deals with the first decades of formal relations between the Argentine Automobile Club (ACA) and the government oil company, Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales (YPF). It aims to analyze, at the same time, two dimensions: on one hand, the construction of the first national network of oil stations, a complement to the new road network and a crucial presence in some isolated places; on the other hand, the complex relationship between a civil association and the State, that lays beneath this construction. The expansion of the State levels en the 1930s frequently implied the articulation between the State apparatus and associations representing different private interests. Within this frame, in 1936 ACA signed a very profitable contract with YPF to sell the products of this state-owned company. Due to this contract, the ACA was able to build over 90 oil stations between 1937 and 1955. After the arrival of Peronism, the ACAYPF Plan continued its development, although under greater governmental supervision. In this new stage, ACA lost part of its former autonomy in oil stations handling, a factor that led to a growing indebtedness that reached critical levels by the end of the period.
