The snacks, drinks, and often full meals available at gas stations vary greatly depending on where you are in the country; they’re dictated by local tastes, demographics, and culinary ingenuity. That's why Eater compiled some of America’s favorite regional gas station indulgences.

"When winding a car up the craggy shoreline of Lake Superior’s North Shore, it’s vital to stop for a gas fill-up in the rustic village of Lutsen. Inside Lockport Marketplace, travelers will find everything necessary for a trip in this northern part of the country. Groceries, camp supplies, fresh baked goods, and the best roadside hot-from-the-oven pasties in the state. The savory hand pies are popular around Minnesota’s Iron Range region, as an easily transported and hearty lunch for area miners. Lockport’s include a flaky crust, beef, carrots, potatoes, and the all-important, pungent rutabaga." —Joy Summers
