Eater has been recognized by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) as a finalist in the Lifestyle News category at the 2022 National Magazine Awards, a celebration of all the sweet, salty, crisp and caffeinated ways Americans eat at the gas station .
In a pack of 15, Eater explores how these iconic pit stops fill our literal and metaphorical tanks. A dynamic mix of stories includes a historical insight into the vital role gas stations played to segregated black motorists in the South; a tour of Austin’s traffic-heavy, food truck-lined section of the road known as the “Taco Mile”; California’s Mobil Station, the area’s most popular destination. One of the welcoming (and delicious) restaurants, of all places, in Yosemite National Park.
Eater has previously won National Magazine Awards in 2016 and 2017 for The Disney World Survival Guide and Paris Eater’s Guide, and was a finalist in 2018. This year’s ASME winners will be announced in a presentation on Tuesday, April 5th. In the meantime, check out the full list of Vox Media nominees and explore Filling Up.
