Economists predict rapid disappearance of petrol-only service stations:
Half of the Netherlands’ petrol stations are set to close in the next 5 to 10 years as electric cars start to take over the market, according to ING Research. The bank’s economists say there will be insufficient earnings in future, with only some 2,000 of today’s 4,131 gas stations remaining. “It is mainly the small, unmanned petrol stations that will disappear,” says ING Research.
As electric vehicles replace petrol and diesel cars, small stations with unmanned pumps that rely on fuel sales will disappear.
