Is the situation at the pumps really improving? Our maps and curves to follow the evolution


Elisabeth Borne said that the situation has improved significantly at service stations. We take stock with our maps and curves.

FUELS – Emmanuel Macron bets on it. During his broadcast on France 2 on Wednesday, October 12, the President of the Republic promised a rapid normalization of fuel supply to service stations. To this end, the government has carried out several requisitions in warehouses and refineries where strikes have multiplied to demand wage increases.

Thanks to the end of the conflict at Esson-ExxonMobil, thanks to all the measures we have taken, we are now seeing a significant improvement in the situation. Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne told the National Assembly, referring in particular to the searches of strikers.

But a week after the presidential declaration, not all the stations have been filled, far from it. According to the data communicated this Tuesday, October 18 by the Ministry of Energy Transition, around a quarter continue to experience difficulties. This means that at least one of the normally available fuels is missing.

as you can see below, that 24.8% of stations still in difficulty represents the lowest figure for a week. This could suggest that the situation is improving at the national level.

This national figure still has a limit because it still reveals the different difficulties according to the French regions. the map below allows you to see the situation in each region; more than 40% of the stations are in difficulty in Bourgogne Franche Comté, while only 8.4% are in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

Good news, however, for road users. The aforementioned improvement is visible in all regions. As you see on the map belowthe number of stations in difficulty decreased throughout the territory this Tuesday compared to the previous day.

These latest graphs allow us to follow the evolution in each region since the beginning of the crisis in the refineries. For several days, the Ministry of Energy Transition only provided data for the most affected regions (Hauts-de-France and Île-de-France).

Where do these numbers come from?
These data are compiled by the Ministry of Energy Transition from the reports that a large part of the stations (approximately 9,500 out of 11,000, which distribute more than 500 cubic meters per year) must carry out twice a day on a government site basis. . .
