The 40 million motorists association suggests that French people send their fuel ticket directly to the President.
For several months now, the situation has been difficult for motorists, while the price of fuel continues to break new records, and this seems set to continue. However, the government does not in any way want to lower taxes on gasoline and diesel, while taxes currently represent more than 60% of the price of a liter. A positioning justified by Bruno Le Maire who explains thatlower the VAT would generate too great a shortfall for the State, while the Minister of the Economy had affirmed not to be closed to the distribution of new aid. Finally, the government opted for a revaluation of the mileage allowance scale, announced yesterday by Jean Castex. A measure that is nevertheless far from unanimous.
This is particularly the case of the association 40 million motorists, which considers this announcement largely insufficient and which launches a counter-offensive in order to protest against the refusal to lower taxes. For this, the association is relaunching its operation “pump stroke”, already implemented a few years earlier. The goal ? Make the government aware of the difficulties encountered every day by motorists, and thus lead it to take fairer measures. For this, the French are simply invited to send their fuel invoices directly to Emmanuel Macron for the duration of the operation.
All you have to do is slip your receipts into an envelope and send it for free. Indeed, it is not necessary to frank a letter intended for the President of the Republic. Visit the dedicated website to find all the information.
