20.7% of gas stations are “struggling”

This number that was provided by the government is a little higher than it was last Friday.

The challenges that service stations have in securing fuel supply continue, although they are not growing any worse. This Saturday at one o'clock in the afternoon, 20.7% of service stations in France were “experiencing difficulty” with at least one fuel, which is an increase from Friday's percentage of 19%. Even though there has been a very tiny improvement in the situation, Hauts-de-France and Ile-de-France continue to be the most afflicted regions.

For instance, 41% of stations experience problems in Pas-de-Calais, compared to 42% on Friday and 52% on Thursday; 39% of stations experience problems in the North, compared to 43% and 47% respectively.

According to Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Minister of Energy Transition, the strike movement is still going strong in refineries and oil depots. The issue was able to be brought under control on a nationwide scale thanks, in part, to the fact that heavy cargo vehicles that refueled at stations were permitted to circulate throughout the weekend.

Due to the severe lack of fuel, two ministerial orders relaxed restrictions on the circulation of larger than 7.5-ton transport vehicles on October 8, 9, and 10. These restrictions had been in place from the beginning of the fuel crisis. “vehicles for transporting hydrocarbon products,” except “butane, propane, and gases for industrial use,” are the focus of this article. In addition, “the empty return of the listed cars” is “allowed during these days of prohibition lifting on the national territory.” [citation needed]

Minister Pannier-Runacher urges everyone to accept responsibility and continue stocking up in the usual manner, without making any additional efforts to do so. The target audience consists of motorists who, in addition to filling their tanks, fill jerry cans or cans. Several prefectures have issued a directive that prohibits the carrying out of these actions. “The government is making every effort to restore the situation to normal as soon as possible,” the minister, who did not fail to put pressure on the leaders of Total and the CGT, which is at the origin of the supply difficulties due to its strike, guarantees. “The government is making every effort to restore the situation to normal as soon as possible.” “This social struggle, which weighs on the daily existence of the French, must be found a solution to as soon as possible,” the author writes.
