The Haute-de-France region was particularly affected, with 54.8% of STAs interested. In details, they are 59.1% in Pas de Calais and 55.8% in the North. Since Saturday, these numbers have been increasing. The second region in trouble: Ile-de-France, where 44.9% of stations “do not have at least one product”, according to the Ministry of Energy Transition.

Minister Agnès Panier-Runacher reminds on Sunday “his very solid appeal” to the TotalEnergies and ExxonMobil unions. “The solution must be found without delay in the social dialogue that must take place in the companies. The French must no longer suffer the consequences of the social movement. This conflict must end.” According to her, the step has been taken “The management of TotalEnergies today anticipates mandatory annual negotiations in October, thus responding to the government’s call.” CGT TotalEnergies, which has been leading the dispute for ten days, has not yet responded to the offer.

Finally, Agnès Panier-Runacher highlights the opening of fuel depots and the release of trucks this weekend, which will increase fuel supplies by 20% over the last two days. The minister urges the French not to rush to gas stations and promises “improvement on Monday throughout the day.”

For its part, TotalEnergies calls on Sunday in a new press release “everyone’s responsibility so that the company can secure the supply of the French under the best possible conditions.”
