About Us

Quality wholesale gasoline in La Junta, CO

Bob Wallace founded Wallace Oil Company in 1962 with $15,000 in savings and a $10,000 loan. Bob worked for 10 years as an employee of Phillips Petroleum Company and 40 years as an independent distributor. He played basketball for the Phillips 66ers, was an alternate for the U.S. team Olympic playoffs and is an inspiration to his family. The same drive and determination that made Bob a standout on the court helped contribute to the success of the business he built. Over several decades his reputation for honesty and fairness kept customers coming back for fuel, automotive service, and convenience items. 

In 2002 Bob decided to 'officially retire' and sold the company to his two sons Jim and Dan Wallace. The brothers would launch an expansion of the business while remaining true to the values of its founder. Thanks to their efforts and the strong foundation they had to build on, Wallace Oil Company grew over the years to include eight gas stations.
