As the fuel shortage rages on, here are the most affected regions in France and those where the situation is a little less difficult.
For most motorists, the search for fuel is complex. But in some departments and regions, it can be even more difficult. Generally, the east, north and south of France are particularly affected, according to data distilled by various applications dealing with the subject. In terms of regions, this concerns in particular:
- Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (more than 30% of stations are out of one type of fuel)
- Bourgogne-Franche-Comté (more than 30% of stations are out of stock)
- Île-de-France (more than 30% of stations are out of stock)
- Center Val-de-Loire (15% to more than 30% of stations out of one type of fuel)
- The PACA Region (15% to 30% of resorts in difficulty)
- Occitania (15% to 30% of resorts in difficulty)
- Hauts-de-France (15% to 30% of resorts in difficulty)
The number of stations lacking at least one type of fuel can thus reach 40%. This overall rate was 20.3% in France this Wednesday, October 19. Other regions are also affected by these difficulties. On the other hand, the situation is a little less bad, especially in the West of France. Among the least affected regions are:
- Brittany (less than 15%)
- New Aquitaine (8.4%)
Most fuel refineries hit by strikes
“I would like to point out that the situation is improving throughout the territoryrecalled Elisabeth Borne before the Senate on October 19, for questions to the government. In Hauts-de-France, we were at 55% rupture a week ago, today we are at 15%. In Île-de-France, the situation is also improving with minus eight points on the number of blocked stations”
“In Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the unblocking of the Feyzin depot has enabled significant improvements since yesterday morning. We went from 36% to 26% of stations out of stock. I know that the situation is still difficult for many of our compatriots, but the momentum is there and I want to once again call on the striking employees to return to work. It is unacceptable for a minority to block the country. » Elisabeth Borne.
Remember that the fuel shortage is due to strikes currently affecting refineries. Two of the seven tricolor infrastructures of this type are thus stopped for this reason. This concerns the TotalEnergies sites in Gonfreville (Manche) and Feyzin (Rhône).
