United States Oil and Gas Corp. Grows Operating Capacity for Refined Fuels by 64% to Create Additional Shareholder Value

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - November 6, 2009) - United States Oil & Gas Corporation (PINKSHEETS: USOG), a growing oil and gas products, services and technology company, announced that it grew its hauling capacity of refined fuels by 64%. Wholly owned subsidiary Turnbull Oil has purchased an additional tank wagon truck with 4,500 gallons of capacity for hauling refined fuel. The company's recent acquisition of this specific hauling truck was made in order to meet the growing demand from the market and diversify its holdings.

Based on existing capacity utilization rates and revenue of $2.7 million already generated from the sale of refined fuels during the third quarter of 2009, USOG can increase delivery volume and revenue from the purchase of this new hauling truck by an additional $1.9 million annually. Demand for refined fuels is being driven by the increase in drilling activity, strong Kansas harvest, and oil price escalation.

As previously mentioned in regards to the recent fluctuation of the company's common share price, the Company commented that, "It has no information that would cause such volatility to occur. Secondly, nothing has changed in the operations of the Company other than to continue on our growth pattern and expansion plans. USOG is currently profitable and it has been able to show continued growth even in a downward economy."

Wholly owned Turnbull Oil is a regional distributor of oil and gas products with 300+ customers. Besides refined fuels such as diesel and gasoline, the company supplies propane and lubricants. It currently owns all of its own storage tanks and fleet of hauling trucks with a combined capacity of over 600,000 gallons.
