According to reports in the French press, the strike of refinery workers continues against the pension reform, which the government directly accepted without putting it to a vote in the Parliament.
As a result of the strike, about 30 percent of the stations in Paris and about 15 percent of the nationwide are experiencing fuel shortages.
While some vehicle drivers had difficulty in finding fuel, fuel sales advertisements were placed on second-hand websites.
The local press advised citizens not to buy these products, warning that the fuel on the sites in question was not inspected and their content might have been changed.
It is feared that the fuel shortage will increase further in the coming days due to the strikes.
Pension reform crisis
The demonstrations in France, which started on March 16, continue after the government’s decision to pass the draft law, which includes raising the retirement age by 2 years from 62 to 64, without voting.
Violence is taking place in many parts of the country between the protesters and the police, who violently intervened in the demonstrations.
More than 1,000 people have been detained in protests across the country since March 16.
