PetrolPrices: a digital disruptor for the modern forecourt
That’s where we come in. PetrolPrices.com has been around since 2005, expanding the service to reach nearly 3 million people over the course of our lifetime. We recently updated our core service to add on a new focus on customer experience at the forecourt. While fuel pricing will always be a key priority for us, knowing the way the government is pushing for electric and low emissions vehicles, it’s evident that petrol stations as we know they aren’t going to be around forever. That’s why we chose to add in customer experience data, to allow forecourt owners to give customers the best possible experience.
What is PetrolPrices and how do we help people save money at the pump?
We have a database that through crowdsourcing, will soon cover nearly all of the UK petrol stations. Some, like independents in far-flung corners, may take longer to register on the system and for us to collect the data for. The entire service is completely free, and always will be. All the major service stations are covered including brands like BP, Shell, and Texaco as well as smaller chains and hundreds of independent stations.
Where the fuel price data comes from:
The fuel price data is collected from the hundreds of thousands of fuel card transactions that are processed at petrol stations across the country each day. We receive approximately 8,000 price updates from this data each day, ensuring that we have the most up to date figures displayed. Along with our user data, we hope that our site has the most up to date and reliable price data across the industry.
