Guardian: The disappearing petrol station Oil companies are shutting petrol stations and even outsourcing accountancy services to Poland in a drive to cut costs despite making record profits. Eleven forecourts a week are now being closed and the number owned by oil companies - rather than supermarkets or other retailers - fell by more than 300 last year, figures from the Energy Institute show.
