This month marks the 114th anniversary of the Galveston hurricane that took the lives of at least 8,000 people. It remains the single worst disaster in U.S. history in terms of fatalities. While a lot of technological advancements have taken place in this century, the truth is that catastrophes like hurricanes continue to be an ever-present and unavoidable threat to Texans. Fortunately, the Apache Oil company is ready to provide on-site fuel service even in the face of the worst calamities.
Having a constant supply of fuel during these dire circumstances is of utmost importance. This is primarily because fuel usage usually ramps up during emergencies, and an area’s oil reserves might not be enough to keep up with the demand. Even worse, damage to infrastructure can hamper a town or city’s ability to replenish its supplies.
