Media: French gas stations run out of fuel

PARIS, 9 Oct – PRIME. Nearly 30% of petrol stations in France are experiencing a shortage of at least one type of fuel on Sunday, BFMTV reported, citing the country’s energy ministry.

France proposes to shorten the heating season by a month

“About 30% of gas stations faced a shortage of at least one type of fuel (29.7%) due to the blocking of oil refineries due to the strike of TotalEnergies and ExxonMobil employees,” the TV channel reported.

Earlier Sunday, employees at TotalEnergies and ExxonMobil announced the continuation of their strikes.

After that, the management of TotalEnergies said that it was ready to hold annual salary negotiations a month earlier “subject to the end of the lockdown of warehouses and the consent of all social partners.”

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.

The strike, in particular, affected the largest refinery in France near the city of Le Havre in Normandy, as well as refineries in the communes of Feuzin and Donge, the biorefinery La Mede in the commune of Châteauneuf-lès-Martigues, as well as the Grandpuis fuel storage facility.

Another reason for fuel shortages at TotalEnergies gas stations was a 20-cent-per-litre rebate, valid from September 1 to November 1, that the company introduced to avoid excess profit tax.
