IDAHO — Thousands of cars are expected to hit the road as people travel to see the Great American Eclipse and chances are, those travelers will need a bathroom break at least once while on the road.
A new report from QuikTrip reveals the nation’s cleanest gas station bathrooms, on average, according to GasBuddy.
Chevron came in as Idaho’s top rated gas station for bathroom cleanliness with Maverik, Holiday and Sinclair taking the top spot in neighboring states.
GasBuddy officials say a recent survey revealed 64 percent of respondents said one of their worst fears about a road trip is the need to use the restroom and not knowing when the next one will be available and 69 percent of users said they wouldn’t consider visiting a gas station convenience store with less than 3 out of 5 stars.
“Today’s customers expect more than a key attached to a hubcap or a sign informing visitors that restrooms are for ‘paying customers only’,” said Frank Beard, convenience store and retail trends analyst at GasBuddy. “As someone who has visited more than 1,000 c-stores in 24 states, I’ve seen that many leading convenience stores have already separated themselves from the competition by making restroom quality a priority.”
