Wenatchee Petroleum was founded in 1924 by Red Ogan. His son, Mike, joined the company in the 1960’s, and led the company through its growth with acquisitions of Zbinden Oil in Ellensburg, WA and A-1 Petroleum was formed. Mike’s sons joined the company with Bob running the Wenatchee operation and Greg running the Ellensburg operation. Greg’s son Ross joined the operation when the Inland Oil operation was acquired, bringing the company into its fourth generation of ownership.
