No, except for some chili sesame oil that I keep in the fridge.

I keep my olive oil in a dark, cool cabinet. Have never kept any oil in the fridge. But then again, I don't use many oils!

I store the peanut oil that I deep fry with in the fridge - after it's been strained through a coffee filter of course. Other than that they're all in the cupboard.

only stuff that`s Kept in oil stays in the fridge here, things like Anchovies and feta cheese in chili oil, and I keep coconut oil in the fridge too (it makes it easier to break a piece off when I need to).

EVOO`s strange in a fridge, it goes waxy and sometimes crystaline, it`s perfectly safe but it looks odd :)

I do not refridgerate oils, but olive oil aside, I buy them in small enough amounts that I use them in a reasonable period of time. I use a lot of olive oil, and keep the large container in my pantry cabinet. It is hard to describe it, but the pantry is on a wall that is half-under-ground and is very cool and dark (in the winter it can sometimes be cool enough that olive and peanut oils become very thick). It is the only oil I buy in bulk. I do not deep fry, so have no need to store large amounts of oil for that purpose
