The Company was founded in 1968 as an oil company. As demand for propane evolved the company diversified and became a propane and oil company until the 1980’s when it became entirely concentrated in the distribution of liquid propane, the fuel of the future. Bay Gas has been servicing primarily Suffolk County, supplying businesses and residences with liquid propane, and service, flawlessly and without incidents for all these years. Bay Gas distributes approximately 10 million gallons of liquid per year. Bay Gas specializes in and is recognized as experts in all types of heating and environmental systems and in particular in the use of “clean and green” alternative fuels. Through acquisitions of various independent distributors over the years, Bay Gas has amassed a customer base of approximately 30,000 consumers.
Currently Bay Gas has 50 employees and bases the operation in Shirley (Long Island), New York. It is at this location where facilities are ample to store product in a safe and secure environment.
Mr. O’Loughlin has served as president of the Long Island Propane Gas Association, is a member of the New York State Propane Gas Association, a member of the National Propane Gas Association and serves as an advisor to the Propane Education and Research Council, Washington, DC.
Bay Gas has pioneered the use of liquid propane as a vehicle fuel in commercial fleet vehicles. Bay Gas has converted its fleet of service and bulk delivery trucks to run exclusively on liquid propane and is entering the fourth year of service with this expanding fleet which numbers 15 and soon to expand further. Bay Gas is proud to have Mr. John O’Loughlin, Jack’s son, as Chief Operating Officer, further distinguishing itself in providing the best overall propane service in the community.
