Kwik Trip’s campus in La Crosse is massive. It's home to one of the largest bakeries in the entire world. They make all of their bread, donuts, and cookies there.

They also bottle their milk - with a promise to have it delivered from cow to stores in 24-48 hours - and they make their ice cream in La Crosse too.

5-years ago the convenience chain introduced fried chicken to their lineup, and it was a massive success. But when we talk about food, Kwik Trip is probably best known for its donuts.

They sell more than 30 million Glazer donuts annually, which is impressive. Personally, though, I'm all about their dunkers and I'm super excited to taste the new product they introduced Monday.

URGE chips are really good. Kwik Trip explains they are " No Dip Required!" chips that are uniquely flavored and crunchy. I'm a big fan of sweet and salty combos so I'm pumped to try the new Blueberry Dunker Chips.

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.
