The number of forecourt sites has dropped below 10,000, according to latest figures published by Catalist in its Market Summary Report. The total number of petrol stations in the UK is now 9,994.
“This is apparently the first time since 1912 we’ve gone below 10,000 sites,” says Arthur Renshaw, Catalist’s UK and Ireland sales manager.“We knew it was going to happen it was just a question of when. The market is changing rapidly at the moment. The rate of closure hasn’t slowed down this year as much we’d anticipated. The number of oil company owned sites has really dropped now.”
