Exclusive Premium Statistic

Number of petrol stations in the United Kingdom (UK) 2000-2017 This statistic shows the number of petrol station sites in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2000 to 2017. Overall, the number of petrol station sites has fallen since 2000 by over 35 percent. 2013 is the only year of the fifteen recorded here which shows an increase on the previous year's number. In 2013, approximately 34 percent of petrol stations operated on a 24 hour basis. Of the 8,407 petrol stations, BP operated the greatest number of forecourts. BP, ESSO, and Shell were the only companies to operate more than 1,000 sites. From the so-called hypermarket-owned petrol stations, Tesco operated the most stations, with slightly more than 500 forecourts.

Despite owning fewer forecourts, the hypermarket retailers sold a greater volume of fuel, accounting for approximately 45 percent of fuel sold in petrol stations in the UK.

Figures estimated by Experian Catalist
Supplementary notes
* NET figures (closures, less new sites and less re-opened closed/obsolete sites).

The source notes: 'These include ownership changes eg. in the 2010 figures and in prior years, there were about 30 Co-op sites that were own branded fuel Co-op Somerfield and hence these were all classified by us as "hypermarkets". Since then all these sites have become main oil company branded hence they are now classified as dealer eg. And in 2013 Rontec "company" sites under the Total brand change to Esso "dealers".'
