Who’s ready for petrol stations to be owned by Aramco itself?
Well, wait no longer because the oil and gas company itself has announced that the idea will be brought to life-and very soon, at that.
Part of this movement means that Aramco will also create a wholly owned subsidiary called the RetailCo.

The Aramco fuel stops will include a ‘self-service’ station
Arabian Business confirms that each of the Aramco stations will be a self-service one, with the option of paying with credit and debit cards.
With all the anomalies surrounding cash payments at petrol stations recently, this might just be a great new addition.
