Gas station being built in Melbeta

Posted: Updated:

People in a small panhandle community will soon have their own gas station.

"Melbeta All Around" is building a gas station alongside Highway 92. Currently, the closest gas station is in Gering ... About six miles away.

Owner Chad Conklin says the project will cost about 70 -thousand dollars.

He says the gas station will benefit people in both Melbeta and Minatare and help the smaller communities continue to thrive.

"We're proud of our roots out here, and we will never stop building this little shop," explains Conklin. "And we won't be putting of the money in our pocket, we just want to see it happen."

Two pumps, one for unleaded and one for diesel, are expected to be up-and-running by November.
