Got to look on how many people truthfully use oil to heat their home in Welch and McDowell county....
More then likely a greater percent of homes in Welch is heated by natural gas from the Welch Gas Co-op... Now McDowell county, most are heated by propane, if not electric, or coal or wood....

Like I said no one hardly uses oil to heat their home.... It was popular at one time.... But with the cost and price of it, it isn't affordable...
Look up and down route 52 at the many houses with Propane tanks..

I just asked if Lewis oil was closed. Home heating oil is NOT for the poor.

Poor folks are going back to wood and coal.

HC Lewis owns Welch and its residents and what he doesn't own Hoppy does.

If the building sells the new owner/owners will make Lewis pay rent. I don't think H.C. Will do that.

I use wood and coal and, believe me, I am not poor. Also, wood and coal are not, by any means, cheap.

I didn't know that. With wood, do you have to put another log on the fire every hour or so?
