Southwestern Ohio Garage & Gasoline Dealers was once known as The Montgomery County Gasoline Dealers in 1946. Two years later, in 1948 the charter was changed to Southwestern Ohio Gasoline Dealers Association (SOGDA). In 1988 the board voted to add garages to the membership (SOGGDA). For the past 59 years the association has served business members in gasoline, auto repair, towing, tire dealers, convenience stores & car washes, through out southwestern Ohio.
SOGGDA has been non-profit since 1958. Dues are utilized to provide better benefits for members. Join SOGGDA and experience an association that gives personal service to members.

SOGGDA PATH, In the past SOGGDA was in place for the gasoline dealers. It's design was to help the gasoline dealers with the day to day dealings with the gasoline company's and with their business. With the path of oil company's, we lost a lot of dealers to company ran convenience centers. SOGGDA started to include garage owners into association, which helped to grow the membership back up again. Today board members are working to enhance the benefits to the membership of SOGGDA. We already have one of the best worker's comp. programs in the State Of Ohio. We are now adding affiliate members to help with your day to day business.
In the future the board will be working to grow the membership and benefits of belonging to SOGGDA.
