The day before, Saturday, 20.7% of service stations had problems refueling, according to the latest data released by the Government.

The Oise prefecture, for example, has decided to ban the sale of gasoline in cans or drums. It specifies: “Gas station operators will enable priority access for the benefit of medical, paramedical and medical-social personnel. provided with a professional card or a certificate from their employer.” In Seine-Saint-Denis, the decision not to authorize the sale of fuel in containers.

Depending on what the oil tankers can repatriate from Belgium and from Rouen, and to make things easier, we are releasing part of our strategic stocks”, the Minister for Energy Transition, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, had already assured Thursday night on BFMTV.
