France is struggling to meet the fuel demand

Though the fuel supply situation across France seems like is getting better, there is no remedy offered so far and prospects are not lightening.

Tug boat crews at some of the French ports and refineries this week have joint the strike against changes to labor legislation. That is just a small part to describe a really tension situation all over France. Half of all of the refineries do not operate at all. Some do, but not at the maximum of their capacity.

At least seven crude tankers and seven product tankers have been in Marseille port on Thursday.  Port workers are on strike more than 10 days already. Some tankers have been allowed to discharge but the whole situation remained gloomy.

The country’s government is trying to reduce the strain and deliver some fuel from, say, Holland, but that could be affected by railroad workers strike which began this week on Wednesday.

So far there are no signs that show reducing of tension. Quite opposite. No dialog even has begun.  So, the question of how long this turmoil will continue and how much it will cost is still open.
