HUNDREDS of petrols stations have run out of fuel bringing France to a standstill after striking union members blocked oil refineries.

Thousands more petrol stations are nearly empty as rolling strikes and protests against controversial labour reforms continue to cripple France’s economy. 

The chaos could continue during Euro 2016, as protestors refuse to back down and transport workers also threatening to go on strike during the competition.

French workers blockaded oil references and depots yesterday in protest against the sweeping changes enforced by the French government.

Workers at six of France’s eight oil refineries are on strike, while one in 20 petrol stations have run out of fuel.

Motorists across the country have ignored pleas not to panic and formed long queues at service stations to fill up their tanks over the weekend. 

Around 1,600 petrol stations out of a total of 12,000 have run out of fuel or are running low.

Trade union leader Emmanuel Lépine said: “We won’t move until the labour reforms are withdrawn.

“It will last at least all of this week.”

Its not looking good in France!

Strikes, fuel, security: France faces Euro 2016 headaches

The latest militant acts have seen oil refineries and fuel depots blockaded across the country which has provoked panic among drivers fearing a shortage.

Despite pleas to not all rush to the pumps, worried motorists have been desperate to get their hands on fuel and as a result some 1,600 petrol stations across the country had run dry, or almost dry, on Monday.

Thousands of fans will be already gearing up to head to France in their cars and the thought that they may have to queue for hours to get fuel or even worse, risk getting left high and dry on a French motorway, will have them sweating into their replica football shirts.

The government insists all will be fine and say they have plenty of stocks but the crisis is growing before their very eyes and unions have vowed that football is simply not as important as the livelihoods of French workers.

“The European football championships is not sacred. It’s an international competition. What is sacred is the fate of workers in this country and around the world,” former union leader Bernard Thibault told France Info radio.

With over two weeks to go before the start of the tournament there is plenty of time for France to refill its petrol pumps, but as we all know issues are rarely resolved quickly in the country.

Fans will hoping the government fulfills its vow to use all means necessary to break the blockades of fuel depots.

There is of course the alternative to travelling around France by car, with fans also able to use the excellent French train network except…

Rail strikes are planned
