Columbus City Spotlight


Ohio is home to the first electric traffic light and the first automobile service station, so it’s no surprise that Ohio is also home to the most passionate gas station fans.

How did we come to that conclusion? We crunched the numbers.

Gas stations in The Buckeye State have an average of 113 GasBuddy ratings and reviews per station. That is the highest state average in the entire country. Ohio’s capital Columbus nearly doubles that number with an average of 215 ratings and reviews per station.

So it only makes sense that we dedicate our first City Spotlight of the year to Columbus, the capital of the most passionate gas station fans in the USA. Here are the top-rated gas stations in the city.
