Oil City is in the Erie Region of Pennsylvania.
Oil City is the largest city in Venango County Pennsylvania United States. It grew large once Oil was struck in Titusville. Founded in 1860 on the site of a Seneca Indian village, it burgeoned as an oilcentre after the drilling of the world’s first oil well (August 27, 1859) at Titusville, about 16 miles up Oil Creek. Incorporated as a borough in 1862, it became a city in 1871 after merging with Venango City.
