Gas stations are still a huge business in the UK, with franchisees earning over £100m in UK profits in 2015.
But the franchise fees can vary greatly.
This is why we decided to put together a list of some of the most expensive gas stations in the country, so you can compare prices with your local petrol station.
We then calculated what each franchise fee would cost you in cash and used it to compare the cost of the gas in a variety of locations across the UK.
