According to AFP, 3.75% of service stations have been out of stock of one or more products since the beginning of the week… could you confirm this?
I don’t have the exact numbers. Afterwards, it’s a natural percentage and it has nothing to do with social movements. It happens regularly that some stations are out of stock because they had ordered their restocking a little too late. What is happening right now does not bode well for a supply crisis worthy of the one we had in October.
“The strike notice and the absence of information on how it will be followed on Thursday does not allow us to say that we are going towards supply problems or not”
So there is nothing to worry about?
Yes, yes, all the same, because there is a strike notice that has been filed in the refineries. That said, it’s not enough to really worry us. It all depends on 1) the number of refineries affected by the strike 2) the number of strikers in each of the refineries and 3) the duration of the movement. The notice currently concerns 1 day this week, 2 days next week and 3 those after. And even if there is a 3-day strike, that’s not why a refinery stops. In October, they stopped because the strikes lasted longer. The strike notice and the lack of information on how it will be followed tomorrow (note: Thursday January 19) does not allow us to say that we are going towards supply problems or not. But we are still worried.
Especially since the social movement could be of magnitude…
