kitchen outlet wiring

I have two outlets in my kitchen that are wired on a single breaker. One of them has a single set of wires and the other has two sets.

Why is this? Is one feeding the other power?

kitchen outlet wiring

A simple ansewer is yes.
There's not a whole new line ran to every outlet back to the panel with abreaker for each one.
That's why there's screws on both side of the outlets so they can be connected together.
