Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
News » Reports

Change for the better

This year the top-level numbers would suggest that the forecourt sector has been fairly quiet over the past 12 months with the number of open sites being only three fewer than last year. However, you only need to scratch the surface to see that there have been a lot of changes culminating in February with the second largest dealer group, the Motor Fuel Group, buying the largest dealer group, MRH, for £1.2bn.

Essential roadside services

New research from the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) has shown the essential contribution that the UK's petrol forecourts make to the economy, to working people and to communities.
