TIL: Where does Github CLI store its credentials?

When using sapling, it can access my github with my credentials by asking me to gh auto login. I was wondering where it stores these credentials: in the keychain, in a file, in the environment? It’s here:

$ cat ~/.config/gh/hosts.yml
    user: iOliverNguyen
    oauth_token: gho_████████████████████████████
    git_protocol: https
