In a heavy skillet, combine the oil and the flour and cook the roux over moderately-low heat, stirring constantly, for 30 minutes, or until it is the color of milk chocolate. Add onion, and the celery and cook the mixture, stirring until the vegetables are softened. Add the stock, simmer the gravy for 30 minutes.
