We sell Exxon, Mobil, Phillips 66, and Sinclair as well as unbranded products from a variety of suppliers. We sell branded lubricants, solvents, greases and antifreeze supplied to us by ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips and CAM2, our own line, meeting the needs of any specialty products required by our customers. Our fuel and lubricant services include bulk delivery by a team of professional and safe transportation staff at no additional cost. We are also the proud owners of the Casey’s Corner Convenience Stores, where we are able to serve Southwest Montana’s population with fuel and amenities such as food, drink, full restaurant services, Chester’s Chicken and much more.

Everything done on a handshake

We are contributors to the Three Forks Fishing Derby, the Bozeman Stampede, HRDC and many local high schools. We donate to over 50 separate activities within the communities that we serve and our personnel have served as presidents and committee chairman for organizations such as Rotary, Ducks Unlimited, the MSU Foundation, Bobcat Boosters and Junior Achievement. Our founder and past President, Doug Alexander, served as President of the Montana Petroleum Marketers Association, Western Petroleum Marketers and as Western Region Vice President for Petroleum Marketers Association of America, our national association. In addition, we have served on various advisory boards and business improvement forums for our suppliers.

History

Rooted in Bozeman
Story Distributing’s history reaches almost as far back as Bozeman’s — The Story Motor Supply was founded in 1905 by Nelson Story, Jr., whose father, Nelson Story, was one of the city’s original founders. The motor supply is the oldest operating petroleum distributor in the State of Montana and was purchased in April of 1976 by Story Distributing.
