The CGT union claim that the strike has now affected all eight French oil refineries and equally, the government say that only around 20% of petrol stations are affected. But with motorists posting images on social media that clearly show more and more stations running dry, it seems that the 20% figure is conservative.
It's hard to get a handle on it down here in the south west where there's been no real disruption to date but I've got several friends who are literally stranded 'up north' and with calls for open ended metro strikes, a walk out at power plants tomorrow and air traffic control potentially getting involved, it's obviously going to affect more and more of us.
I'm (hopefully!) off to the UK next week to see my mum who has just come out of hospital. As James has a herniated disc, organising my departure has been akin to planning the invasion of a small country so I am determined that a few strikers won't stop me - I'll walk if neccessary! But joking aside, how is it where you are? Have your petrol stations run dry? Is it going to affect your travel plans?
