Petrol station owner type numbers in the United Kingdom (UK) 2000-2019

This statistic shows the change in the number of petrol station sites across the United Kingdom (UK) between 2000 and 2019 according to the site ownership type. Overall, the number of petrol station sites declined since 2000 by around a third. The number of petrol stations owned by hypermarkets grew, but continued to hold the smallest share of petrol station sites up until 2015, when a sharp reduction in the number of companies owning sites moved them to second in the list.
