  • Company offers additional information about gas purchases

    We would like to offer additional information about the gas pricing story from last week. Several people have asked about the city purchasing gas from a convenient store rather than Bault Oil.

    The City of Hodgenville does not have a contract with Bault Oil Company. A contract has never existed with the city for fuel or oil purchases.
