Quik Trip gas stations are the best! They are sanitary and cheap. They have the best customer service and I would not go to any other gas station.

The employment in this area is alright. Many people have jobs they enjoy with fair wages. However, many jobs are moving to other states and there is not a diverse job market in the area either.
I tend to go in areas I know, so I'm aware of my surroundings.
