Abstract—Owing to the unreasonable layout problem and the excessive number of gas station in some regions of China, this paper attempts to discuss the principle of rationality and related factors for the gas station layout. In determining the relationship between the number of stations and motor vehicle demand, this paper simulates the vehicle’s selection of price by using Starlogo simulation platform. While it focuses on researching the traffic flow density and the impact of the consumer price preferences, and analyzing the influence of the station network layout because of price changing. Finally, it attempts to provide a reference for the relevant decision-making.
