Infrastructure: Underground Heating Oil System

The oil system was unique at that time. A lot of developments had gas underground, and electricity for furnaces, but most places used oil tanks for diesel oil and at that time diesel oil was about 10 cents/gallon. Incredible, when now it’s over $4/gallon. It was quite reasonably priced to heat houses with. I met these people who had a big oil company downtown, one of the biggest in Seattle. T
