Number of petrol/fuel stations in Germany 1950-2019

This bar chart shows the development of the number of fuel stations in Germany from 1950 to 2019. The number of filling stations in Germany peaked in 1970 with over 46,000 sites recorded that year. This figure has been in decline ever since, falling below 15,000 petrol stations in 2008. In 2018, Germany had the second highest number of petrol stations of any European nation, second only to Italy.
The United Kingdom has also seen a decline in the overall number of petrol stations, with an overall reduction of 4,713 from the year 2000 to 2018. The experience of both the United Kingdom and Germany sits in contrast to that of other parts of the world, with Mexico nearly doubling the number of available stations from 2004 to 2017.
