    Oleo is a margerine, which is a spread or cooking fat made of refined vegetable oils ( and sometimes rendered animal fats) processed to the consistency of butter.

    It can be purchased in any grocery store in the dairy section next to real butter.

    Oleo is the original name for margarine, or butter substitute. They used to give you a packet of yellow food coloring that you could add to make it look more like butter (because the oleo was white, like crisco).

    Oleo is an old-school name for margarine, NOT butter.

    Oleo is simply a Midwestern term for margerine. When it was first introduced to the market, it was called "oleomargerine". You can, of course, buy margerine at any grocery.
