Fuel crisis has begun in France - Macron, like Boris Johnson, cannot sit in office

The head of the CGT trade union advised motorists to fill up with gasoline in connection with the strike against pension reform

Matho advised the drivers to "go and fill up with petrol because there won't be much soon." The Petroineos refinery in Lavere, near Marseille, will be closed "as of Monday," said the candidate to succeed Philippe Martinez at the head of the General Confederation of Labor for all of France.

Other refineries in the country are also expected to shut down in the coming days. TotalEnergies in Normandy, where employees are on strike but supplies continue, "will be shut down" from this weekend, Eric Sellini, CGT coordinator at the oil group, said on March 17. "Employees raised their voice" and "major units will start shutting down from tomorrow", so "The refinery will be shut down this weekend or Monday at the latest".
