United States Oil and Gas Corporation Releases Preliminary Results From December Sales at Subsidiary; 22% Increase

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - United States Oil & Gas Corporation (PINKSHEETS: USOG), a growing oil and gas products, services and technology company, is pleased to report that sales during the month of December at the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Turnbull Oil, were significantly higher than during the same period last year.

Despite missing five days due to the recent severe winter storms that have hit the Midwestern states including Kansas, where Turnbull operates, the Company has posted higher sales in two of its key product areas, diesel and propane. To date compared to last December, monthly sales of diesel and propane are up 22% and 6%, respectively.

Strong demand from the oil field industry, a key part of Turnbull's customer base, has been driven in large part by the price of crude oil at around $80 per barrel. Increased demand for the Company's fuel services and products has in turn driven sales volume higher and will likely contribute to revenues for the fourth quarter that will be above expectations. This follows what was already a strong third quarter from Kansas farmers' harvesting record corn and soybean crops. Complete details of the Company's earnings will be provided after the quarter ends.

Because Turnbull has strong and consistent margins on its fuels and a relatively large, established customer base, the business has been able to turn a profit and increase revenue even in a down economy. Furthermore, the opportunity to significantly expand Turnbull's operations in the region through several acquisition candidates is available, and the Company looks forward to continuing to grow strategically in 2010.
