The government is trying to reassure. While the French fear fuel shortages and that one in five gas stations experienced supply problems on Friday, executives are more likely to go to the media to explain to motorists what good behavior to adopt. This is particularly the case of the Minister for Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, Christophe Béchu, interviewed by Franceinfo: “There is a topic, it is not to end with a panic movement, which means that motorists say to themselves that, since there are if there is a shortage, they rush to the stations when they are open,” he explained on Saturday, October 8.

Measures have been announced to address these difficulties, including the authorization to operate tankers on Sunday 9 October. “We are working to improve the situation, it will take two or three days in advance. Based on what the tankers can repatriate from Belgium and from Rouen, and to make things easier, we strategically release part of our stocks ” , the Minister of Energy Transition, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, had already assured on BFMTV on Thursday evening. The economic situation between the 20 cents per liter pump discount at TotalEnergies’ gas stations and a strike move within the company to demand a wage increase entering its second week has left fuel shortages stalled in some places.
