The Ogallala Watering Hole try to stand out as a locally owned convenience store by offering the widest variety of in-store products, still at a competitive price, which allows us to compete with larger competitors and chains. We offer Unleaded Fuel with No Ethanol.  The Ogallala Watering Hole also is very involved in our community, which differentiates us from all other gas stations and competitors.  (Including small donations, the yearlong Booster Club promo, I'm a youth sports coach and President of the Ogallala School Foundation).The Ogallala Watering Hole appreciates the support from the community for the past 10 years.
