90th Year Celebration Winds Down

Dear Friends,

As we approach the end of our 90th-anniversary year, we’ve thought a lot about what got us here — how it is that we’re still around when so many other energy companies have gone out of business or been swallowed up.

We think it comes down to going the extra mile for our customers, and letting you know how much we value your loyalty. Whether you’ve been with Wilson for 5 years or 50, we want to thank you for choosing us, and we look forward to serving you for a long time to come!

As winter approaches, we’re hopeful that oil prices will remain stable. Advances in technology have brought us historic levels of domestic oil production, and a heating fuel that burns cleaner. This is a lot better than what’s going on with natural gas, whose cold-weather pipeline problems can cause supply slowdowns.

Thousands of miles of old, leaky natural gas pipelines won’t be replaced for decades due to the high cost involved, though when the work does happen, most of the cost (as much as $1 million per mile!) is eventually passed on to customers. In fact, this is being proposed right now in Pennsylvania!

You should feel good about choosing heating oil, and you can count on Wilson Oil & Propane to be here for you this winter and every winter.
