Welcome to Martin Oil Company
Martin Oil Company is a full service distributor of heating oil, diesel fuel, gasoline and other energy products in western and central Pennsylvania. Martin Oil Company owns Martin General Stores, a regional chain of convenience stores. For 50 years, Martin Oil Company has aimed to provide honest, friendly and dependable service in every transaction. We strive to treat our customers and co-workers with respect. That's a big order in a business environment but having it as a goal has made our company what it is today.
Martin Oil Company was founded in 1962 as George O. Martin and Sons, Inc.. George O. purchased a small Tidewater oil and gasoline distributorship in Bellwood, Pennsylvania. The business, as Martin Oil Company, began a long period of expansion. Now in our third generation, we're still family owned and operated.
In the 1980s, as most traditional gas stations faded away, Martin Oil Company ventured into convenience stores. We now supply a large number of locations that we own, plus many independent stores, service stations, and unattended fueling sites. Many retail locations are branded with the blue and gold Martin Gold Star sign.
Nearly fifty years later, Martin Oil Company services thousands of customers throughout central Pennsylvania. Customers include homes, farms, schools, churches, governmental agencies, and all kinds of businesses. Home heating is the backbone of our business.

There are Martin Oil Company offices in Blair, Cambria, and Huntingdon counties, but deliveries extend to many areas beyond.
Martin General Stores is an important part of our business. Most stores are situated in smaller communities in the beautiful central Pennsylvania country side. We take pride in being the "home town" store. For store locations go to Martin General Stores tab on the bottom of this page. Martin General Stores' outstanding food service goes by the name CARGO. CARGO "Good to Go" food includes pizza, sandwiches, chicken, salads and much more. To see our complete menu click here...CargoMenu.pdf
Martin General Stores are linked in a network with Martin Gold Star Service Stations (including Reighards, America's Oldest Gas Station) and a number of independent retailers. The network, called the Gold Star Fuel Control System, allows purchases at all sites, with information captured on one statement. Gold Star cards are great for individuals or businesses. They provide transaction details and controls that really help manage fuel purchases.
