As a RIA Novosti correspondent reported earlier, on Monday many hours of queues lined up at gas stations on a major highway near Paris due to strikes by TotalEnergies employees. Some gas stations did not have diesel fuel. Drivers complain that they have to wait for their turn for hours, and the French authorities and the United States are blamed for the energy crisis.

Since September 27, a strike by TotalEnergies employees has continued in France demanding a 10% increase in wages, as well as wage indexation for 2022, taking into account record high inflation. The unions later announced an indefinite extension of the strike.
