Number of petrol/fuel stations in Europe 2018, by country

This statistic compares the number of filling stations in Europe, as of the end of 2018. Germany had the second highest number of fuel stations, with over 14,000 sites. The United Kingdom had 8,422 fuel stations in this year, less than half the number of stations in Italy, the country with the most fuel stations in Europe. In 2018, the brand with the most number of petrol stations in the UK was BP.


The combined total of the listed fuel stations falls well short of the number of stations in the United States. In 2016, there was approximately 111,000 gas stations.

In many countries, the number of petrol stations is decreasing. In Germany, for example, the number of available stations decreased by more than half from 1970 to 1990, with a further 4,532 stations closing between 1990 and 2010.
