Ever wondered what the most popular gas station brand is in Maine?

I mean, you probably drove by 75 gas stations today. They are basically the most prevalent stores in America. We love our gas and the convenience of the store typically attached to it.

Now, thanks to the popular site Hubscore, we can now say what Maine's top gas dog is. The site used public data and other metrics to determine every state's number one station, including Maine's.

I bet you have a guess Maine's number one is. Let's just say it might be one that has a certain nickname that we Mainers love to use. Plus, it's probably best known for its convenience and inexpensive coffee over its actual gas pumps. Yes, I'm talking about Cumberland Farms.

One of New England's most popular chains, Cumberland Farms (or Cumby's) perfectly defines the term 'convenience'. The store is a one-stop shop for any Mainer in a bind for gas, a drink, or a quick bite. The stores are known for being very budget-friendly, including inexpensive coffee and food items. There's even a way to lower gas prices with its rewards program.

These are all reasons from Cumby's to be Maine's most popular gas station. It also helps that the state is loaded with them. According to the data company ScrapeHero, there are 43 Cumby's in Maine, making it one of the most prevalent gas stations in the state. Come to think of it, I think I pass four on my 25-minute commute to work. And yes, I typically make a stop to one of them two or three times a week. It's a trusted convenience.

While Cumby's is the most popular in Maine, Hubscore also included an entire top five for the state. Here's a look at the rest of Maine's most popular list.

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.
