A gas station chain says it will take major steps to reduce underage tobacco sales.
Chevron has agreed to conduct employee training, install cash-register prompts that ask for identification, post warning signs, and videotape sales.
Chevron also agreed to require its franchises to report violations and make sales of tobacco to children grounds for termination.
Similar agreements have been reached in the past with other oil companies that have retail outlets.
The efforts are spelled out in an agreement with 27 states and Washington D.C.
Chevron has 9,100 retail outlets.
