One of my coworkers recently interrupted a productive team meeting by suddenly claiming that Casey's General Store has better food than Kwik Trip. This statement completely derailed the focus of our meeting away from our monthly goals and sparked a lively discussion comparing the food items from both convenience stores.

While everyone agreed that Casey's has superior pizza, there was a lot of debate over who has the best chicken, burgers, and breakfast items. Tap the chat button on our app to let us know your favorite and keep reading to see the four new items that Kwik Trip has added to its ‘Hot Spot.’

KT is popular for many reasons, including great customer service, clean bathrooms, and quality products. The company delivers fresh items to its stores daily, such as bread, donuts, milk, ice cream, and more, all made at Kwik Trip’s headquarters in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Food is a big business for this gas station. They sell tens of millions of donuts each year and recently launched a donut-flavored potato chip. Five years ago, Kwik Trip began focusing on dinner time by introducing fried chicken and heat-and-eat take-home meals, both of which have been successful.

 Apparently, KT just discovered how delicious pepper jack cheese is because each of these new items includes it. Two of the new items are breakfast sandwiches, while the other two are for lunch and dinner.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
