Company History

Gas King Oil Co. Ltd. is an independent chain of gas stations, car washes and convenience stores operating primarily in Southern Alberta, Canada. The first branded Gas King location opened in May 1985 at 213 N Mayor Magrath Dr. in Lethbridge, Alberta. This location, known as Eastside Gas King, was to be the flagship location of this new independent oil company.

Gas King - Company History
Gas King - The Very Begining

The Very Beginning

In 1960, Don and Georgia Morris founded a bulk farm fuel business in Shaughnessy, Alberta, Canada. It is known today as Eldorado Petroleum Service Ltd. In the mid-1980s Mr. Morris saw the retail fuel business as a way to diversify while still using his expertise in the fuel trade. In May 1985 Don Morris and his son Brent started the independently owned and operated chain of gas stations known as Gas King Oil Co. Ltd. The operating name would be Gas King. In the early 1990s the Morrises decided to diversify even further. They believed that car washes and convenience stores could enhance their already thriving retail fuel business.

Gas King - Established 1985

Mr. Donald L. Morris passed away in 1992, leaving Gas King to be operated by his family. Under the direction of the Morris family, and with the help of many valuable employees, Gas King has continued to prosper.

In February 2000 Brent Morris purchased all the shares of Gas King Oil Co. Ltd., becoming its third President. He took over from his mother, Mrs. Georgia Morris, who retired. Gas King also operates the brands Crown Car Wash and SnacKing Convenience Stores.

President's Message

Gas King President Brent MorrisWelcome to gasking.com!
Thank you for taking the time to visit. We hope that you will find it informative and are able to find what you are looking for.

In May 1985, my father Don Morris, and I established Gas King in Lethbridge. We are now over 30 years old and proud to still be serving Southern Alberta.

Although my father is no longer with us, it is his values that have guided Gas King for over 30 years of success. We are committed to exceptional customer service, a work environment where employees are family and treating our vendors with the utmost respect.

Thanks to the loyalty and support of Southern Albertans, we have been able to give back to the communities in which we serve. You have made our efforts from charitable donations to the sponsorship of community events, possible. We will continue to do whatever we can to make Southern Alberta an even better place to live.

We owe our success to every customer who has visited Gas King over the years, to our employees whose commitment sustains us and to our suppliers, who help keep our fuel tanks full, our store shelves stocked and car wash equipment in great repair, day in and day out.

We are honoured that you have welcomed us into your communities and into your lives for over 30 years. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Best regards,

Brent Morris, President
