A.P.’s produce delivery business continued to grow and prosper until good roads started to take shape in Louisiana. With the roads came trucks that brought the benefit of speedy delivery. Around this same time, the first oil well was drilled in Leeville, just about 40 miles down the road from Lockport. A.P. took the state’s new and booming industry as an opportunity to further diversify his business. In 1922, he established A.P. Breaux & Sons and began hauling crude oil from the Leeville field and transporting fuel from the New Orleans Refining Company (NORCO).
