Why Akins is the Right Choice

Today, Akins Petroleum is the leading distributor/provider of propane products and appliances, fleet fuel, and oil & lubricants in South Georgia and North Florida. Whether your needs are residential, commercial, industrial, or agricultural we’ve got you covered!

We didn’t start out as a leader in the petroleum industry. Akins Petroleum has been family owned and operated since its founding. We can trace our long history of happy, loyal customers back to 1976, when Buzz Akins, the founder of our company, opened one lone gas station in Valdosta, Georgia.

Successful companies don’t just happen. Success depends upon nurturing year after year to make sure that the needs and expectations of customers are not only met but ultimately exceeded.

Even though, we have continued to expand and grow our business throughout South Georgia and North Florida we have, with forethought, consistently served our hometown community and surrounding communities for 40 years. We are steadfast in our commitment to provide quality products, trustworthy and responsible business practices, and most importantly superior customer service upon which our company was originally founded.

We look forward to leading the way in the propane industry and providing you, your family, and our community the same great services and old-fashioned values that never grow old.
