   “While both companies have serviced the Locust Grove area for years, having Mr. Downing’s relationships within the community and extensive knowledge of the area offers us the ability to offer better oil & propane services to the area.” said Cary Froman, Chief Financial Officer of Froman Oil & Propane Company Inc. “We're glad some of the same familiar faces and voices that Locust Grove customers have come to know, and trust have decided to stay with us. We’re a company that is based around family, and community values. Providing the best service to our customers and their families will always remain our top priority.

We’re Here To Serve You
   Our company began in 1962, a time when our corner Skelly service station was full-service. Each car that was pulled onto our lot was given undivided attention, attendants were friendly, and customer service was as common as the air we breath. We still operate, and steep our employees in that same tradition today.

Here For The Long Haul
   In today’s market, companies come and go as often as the weather changes. We’re one of the exceptions. We’ve been supplying oil & propane to customers' homes, & businesses since 1962. Our customers aren’t diluted to account numbers, they become a part of the family; and like yours, our family is here to stay.

Family Matters
   Our company currently employs 3 generations of the Froman family. Our kids and grandkids have grown up learning how customers should be treated, and the value of a “hard-days work.” 

Giving Back To The Community
   We’re big fans of community: from little league teams, and civic organizations - to holiday parades, and church fundraisers. We believe that a business that doesn’t build up their own community is short lived.

Delivering Excellence
   Most any able-bodied person can deliver oil or propane. We endeavor every day to deliver an excellent fuel experience. From a friendly voice on the phone, professional trained drivers and technicians, and service that never fails, we work tirelessly to keep your oil & propane needs met.
