One Hodgenville oil company has been providing oil and gas to LaRue Countians for several decades.

Bault Oil is a fuel company that is located on 1970 Bardstown Road in Hodgenville. Their hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The company sells gas, diesel, kerosene, motor oil, hydraulic oil and more.

The company is owned by Keith and Dianne Bault, and it’s managed by their son Blake Bault. Blake Bault said his father worked in the oil business in the late 1980s and opened his own oil business in the early 1990s. After opening his own oil business, Blake Bault said his father quit the oil business and opened up a tire business for a short time in Elizabethtown before finally reopening Bault Oil in 1992.

Blake Bault said they service clients in LaRue and the surrounding counties. They haul gas and diesel to retail locations, provide commercial and agriculture diesel and also provide heating oil and kerosene to people to heat their homes.

“We also recently added card readers to our gas and diesel pumps, so now our customers can get gas or diesel on a 24/7 basis, even when we are closed,” Blake Bault said.

Blake Bault went on to say that there is more to the oil business than a lot of people realize and that they always try to do everything they can to provide a high quality and affordable service to their customers.

“I have been brought up around this business. It’s never the same from day to day. Oil prices fluctuate every day. This is a business of revenue and if you lose a penny or two on the overall price, it’s actually a big difference,” Blake Bault said. “We have customers with a lot of different needs and we try to provide a little bit of everything that they need.”
