UK Fuel Forecourt Retail Market Overview

The cost of living crisis has reduced the demand for petrol stations. Consumers are experiencing increased prices of petrol/diesel amidst the current economic crisis and cutting back on non-essential travel in their vehicles as a result, causing petrol station revenues to fall. While fuel is a key driver to petrol station usage, more consumers are visiting these sites to purchase non-fuel related needs and petrol station value sales, excluding fuel sales, has risen.

  • UK market share of petrol retailers: Petrol companies hold the majority of the share of petrol station sites. Esso is top, with Shell and BP close behind.

Petrol Forecourt Retail Market – Consumer Insights

  • Petrol station users are looking for convenience and efficiency, over half of consumers would prefer to use a pay-at-pump petrol service instead of paying inside.
  • Almost three-quarters of UK consumers are interested in additional services at their petrol stations, as we move to a less fuel-dependent economy, more consumers will have to spend time charging their electric vehicle. Spending more time charging their vehicles will be important for petrol forecourt retailers to enhance their adjacent services, so that their users will have a convenient and efficient time while they wait to charge their electric vehicles.
