Founded in 1930 on Main Street by George W Flood, Flood Oil Company has been serving the local community for over 85 years. With our home and farm fuel delivery, Eden Heating and Cooling branch, and service station, Flood Oil is constantly trying to keep up with the times and changes to modern technology.
Flood Oil is still family-owned by George’s nephews, Bob and Peter Flood; his brother Frank remained president of the company until his passing in 2011. The youngest son of a customer said the first time that they came here “The Flood Oil Company Service Station looks the same as the one on the Andy Griffith Show”.
One aspect of Flood Oil that hasn’t changed in 8 decades is our full-service gas station. With a 60-year diesel pump and 30 year old gas pumps, it was time for an upgrade. An upgraded fueling station installation in 2013 includes 24-hour pay-at-the-pump gasoline and diesel pumps. To protect these new pumps, we also installed an overhead canopy and bright LED lights. To that we also added a touch-screen register/computer system to accompany (but not replace) our handwritten gas receipts.
