Number of street petrol/fuel stations in Germany 2020 by brand

There is a total of 2,291 Aral petrol stations on non-motorways in Germany, making it the most ubiquitous petrol station brand in the country. By comparison, the number of independent fuel outlets was just over the total number of Aral stations. Aral is a German brand established in 1924 and owned by BP since 2002. It serves the German and Luxembourgian market. Overall, the number of forecourts in Germany has been in decline, falling from a peak of 46,091 in 1970 to 14,459 by 2019. However, the rate of decline has slowed since 2005.

Petrol stations in Europe

Italy has the most petrol stations out of all European countries. As of 2018, there were 20,800 operational and multiproduct service stations in the country, far more than elsewhere in Europe. The combined total for Europe amounted to around 135,000, however for some countries only figures for 2016 and 2017 had been made available. Germany ranked second, followed by Turkey and Spain.

The ascent of the electric vehicle

Traditional fuels like petrol and diesel for combustion motors have greatly contributed to a rapidly warming climate. Because of this, governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations alike have urged carmakers and car owners to make the switch to electric vehicles. This is also demonstrated by the steady increase in vehicle charging infrastructure. By 2019, there were over 34,600 public electric charging stations across Germany – the majority of which were for normal charge of less than 22 kilowatts.
