German Petrol

Buying Petrol in Germany

Having started in the UK, Whatgas is now collecting petrol prices and petrol station locations  in Germany as well as other European countries.

Germany has a diverse set of petrol station brands including Aral, Esso,  Jet, Shell and Total, with Aral and Shell being the market leaders. Germany has one of the highest number petrol stations in Europe, and one of the highest percentages of independent petrol stations, with 1 in 3 stations not being affiliated to the larger brands.

Germany is one of the most expensive places in Europe to buy petrol, and is one of the few places on the continent that is actually more expensive than the UK. This is driven by slightly higher petrol taxes. A new law in Germany is being considered that would require the petrol stations to give a days notice before changing petrol prices, and to keep them constant for at least 24hrs after any price movement.
