PARIS – The French government said on Sunday that France was on the right track to further alleviate the problem of petrol stations which did not have enough petrol due to strikes at oil refineries, which had hit motorists in all the countries.

Friday’s data showed around 13% of petrol stations still had supply problems, up from more than 30% last weekend.

The strikes have been organized by some TotalEnergies staff, who are demanding a higher salary increase to take account of rising inflation and the large profits made by TotalEnergies.

« We are on the right track, » government spokesman Olivier Veran told Europe 1 radio.

« The gas station crisis will be over when we no longer have French people forced to queue at a gas station to fill up, » he added. (Reporting by Matthieu Protard; Editing by Sudip Kar-Gupta)
