On December 1, 1913, the first American gas station opened in Pennsylvania. Instead of carrying cans of petrol from pharmacies, motorists could now stop, refuel and continue driving. As more and more families owned cars (and lived farther and farther from city centers), gas stations began to appear along highways across America.
Today, we measure a gas station experience by more than fuel. How clean are the bathrooms? How fresh is the coffee? What snack options are available? These 20 brands meet the needs of drivers in all these ways.
