Hunt Refinery


This is Hunt Refining Company in Tuscaloosa. This refinery has been a major employer in Tuscaloosa since 1946. They make products including oil, gas, jet fuel, diesel fuel, home heating oil, and paving asphalt. If you buy gas at a Parade station in the southeast, that fuel was refined right here. Hunt products are marketed as far as New Jersey to the north and Houston and Pensacola to the west and south.

Well, I grew up less than an hour from Tuscaloosa and never knew there was a refinery. We could use some more.

I didn't realize there was a refinery in Tucaloosa. It's interesting that they produce just about every type of oil product.

gogouci - I have no idea, but the plant itself is right on the river
bfarr - Glad to be a fount of relatively useless, but interesting information! :)
Rambling Round - I know what you mean. You'd think with Hunt in town, we could get a break on gas prices!
George-It really is amazing all the things that are petroleum products. I'm sure I left something off the list in the post.

Well, this place has some known "secrets". Once exposed, that would "disgrace" and even cause some "local" people to be afriad! Unethical practices abound up in here, with Upper Management just sitting back and watching it until it is exposed!
