New Travel Center Opens in Rural McKenzie County

Posted: Updated:

Sweet crude is driving a lot of the truck traffic in oil country, but a new business offers to pump up fuel options in a rural area.

The majority of vehicles along highway 85 are trucks.

Although there are a number of new businesses popping up in Watford City, there's a new travel center now open for business in a more rural setting.

The Sweet Crude Travel Center has been open for a week now.

It's located near the Highway 85/Highway 200 intersection, just a few miles from Grassy Butte.

Sweet Crude offers gas, diesel--fresh produce--and a flame resistant brand of clothing.

One of the owners says being out in the middle of nowhere has been a challenge.

They had to develop their own utilities to offer showers and a laundromat.

But the busy intersection serves as a great one stop shop for food, clothing and fuel.

One of the owners, Gary Emineth, also says in the spring they will be developing a man camp--on the backside of the property.
