Row of electrical outlets inoperative


The electrical outlets along our kitchen have stopped working. I've confirmed that none of the breakers have tripped and I've tested that the outlets are not controlled by any light switch.

Before I do something expensive, is there anything else that I might be missing?

GFCI tripped and needs to be reset, backstabbed outlet, loose wirenut. My bet will be a tripped GFCI outlet.
