Icon09 Standard Oil ran out of gas in the Rose Parade

Comment: I've read in many places (although most seem to be similar as
illustration sources) that the Standard Oil Company once had a float in
the Rose Parade that ran out of gas, bringing the entire parade to a halt.
The irony, of course, was in the fact that it was Standard Oil that ran
out of gas. I'm wondering if this illustration is true? And if so, in what
year it occurred? Thanks!
