C.K. Smith Exiting Gasoline Business


Fuel supplier C.K. Smith and Co. Inc., which closed 23 Irving gas stations last month in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, said yesterday its decision was part of a strategy to exit the gasoline business, but will not affect its heating oil and propane services business in Central Massachusetts, the Worcester Telegram reported.

“Today, C.K. Smith, a division of Petrolex II, continues to provide the same fuels and services that the company has provided to customers for over 116 years,” said company President Bruce A. Fortin, in a press release. “All customer accounts, including customers who have prepaid for their oil and customers with a positive budget balance, will continue to be honored.”

“We have kept Central Massachusetts homeowners warm in the winter and cool in the summer for a very long time, and we intend to continue to provide the highest possible levels of customer service for many years to come,” the press release noted.
