Domestic Fuels & Lubes is part of the Santoro Family of Companies, which began in 1952 in Providence, Rhode Island. John Santoro Sr. started Santoro Oil Company after serving in the US Navy during World War II as a decorated war hero in the Italian & African arenas.
A Growing Family Business
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, his sons Joseph, John, and Anthony entered the family business. Over the past 40 years, the brothers have expanded the business with operations in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Virginia, and North Carolina. The expansion has allowed the business to offer a complete line of petroleum products including heating oil, diesel fuels, propane, motor oil, and lubricants along with heating and air conditioning sales and service.
Committed to Doing Business in the Mid-Atlantic
In 1986, as part of the expansion of the Santoro Family of Companies, John Santoro Jr. moved to Virginia along with his family to form Domestic Fuels & Lubes, Inc with the commitment of providing the finest quality in products and service to its customers.
