Market Limited in Part by a Decline in the Number of Gas Stations

Profitability issues and land constraints are conspiring to reduce the number of gas stations in major metropolitan areas, and that in turn is limiting demand for flow meters and counting devices. Major American cities such as Boston, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco in particular have seen this decline, and nationwide in the U.S. the number of gas stations decreased by about 3,000, to 150,000, in 2017
