Supplementary notes

Open sites includes all currently operating petrol stations and those sites that are under development at time of publishing.
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".'
