For several days, oil depots have been blocked in Brittany. Enough to cause difficulties in the supply of fuel to several stations. Currently, there are no less than 30 stations out of fuel, out of 147 in the area.
Difficulties which can also be explained by the behavior of motorists. A point detailed by the Finistère prefecture on Facebook. “These difficulties, which remain occasional, essentially result from the effects of an influx of road users towards service stations, thus generating higher consumption than usual.”
And the prefecture reminds that it “this is not a fuel shortage situation”. The supply of service stations is, in fact, “long-term guarantee despite the ongoing blockages at the Brest and Lorient oil depots”.
Civics and the responsibility of each person
Naturally, “alternative solutions are put in place by most suppliers”. This by turning to other oil depots such as that of Donges or Verne-sur-Seiche.
Except that feeding times may be extended. Which can lead to “temporary station power outages for certain distributors”. Fortunately according to the press release, they are not called “to last”. And they can only be accentuated by “consumers’ excess precautionary reserves”.
Reason why “the prefect of Finistère therefore calls for good citizenship and the responsibility of everyone. He recommends civic behavior to ensure the satisfaction of everyone’s needs.”
Towards an end to the crisis?
Words that come at a time when a solution to the crisis seems to be emerging. Indeed, the demonstrators, representatives of the construction industry, are demanding the abandonment of a tax on non-road diesel (GNR).
However, the Ministry of the Economy would have agreed, Monday evening, to put in place a reimbursement of this tax of six cents per liter. It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to satisfy Protestants.

To sum up
While the fuel supply situation is tense in Brittany, the Finistère prefecture is calling on citizens to change their behavior. This while the crisis evolves, after recent declarations from the government.
