The Bowling Green Refining Company: Makers of "Kentucky Maid" GasolineLandmark Report (1998)
In 1931, Depression-struck oil producers in Warren, Simpson and Allen Counties created the Bowling Green Refining Company to convert local crude into gasoline. With a daily capacity of 1,500 barrels, the company produced its brand of "Kentucky Maid" gasoline at a forty-acre facility near Memphis Junction. Service stations throughout the area sold Kentucky Maid until 1936, when supply problems forced the company into liquidation.
