Gas stations across the UK have been forced to post an calorie count on their premises to help fight obesity.
The change comes as the UK Government prepares to introduce legislation to force gas companies to make their energy from renewable sources by 2025.
The measures, which will be introduced in stages starting in 2018, will force gas station owners to post the number of litres of fuel they use per customer and the average number of customers who consume the same amount of fuel.
This is the latest step in the Government’s push to reduce obesity rates.
The Government has previously said that it wants to reduce overall UK calorie consumption by a third by 2025, but is expected to reduce that target to less than 1.5% by 2026.
The new rules are expected to affect around 6 million gas stations.
In an effort to cut down on obesity, the Government introduced a new tax of up to 2% on energy bills, starting in 2020.
Gas is the UK’s most popular fuel.
It has been used to power some of the country’s biggest businesses including the BBC, the UK government and many national security operations.
The UK’s carbon footprint is the third highest in the world, behind China and the US.
