It is not only on the roads that the French are feeling the effects of high fuel costs.
“Refuelling a 42-metre yacht in Italy (instead of France) gives a saving of nearly €21,000 (£18,800) a week because of the difference in tax"

"Complaining that the EU is allowing Italy and Spain to undercut the Côte d’Azur, they called for the “urgent harmonisation of tax and social regulations at the European level”." Now who would have believed that.

Not much saving if any on fuel prices compared to England

Except Luxembourg of course

I filled up in UK at £1.327 per litre before coming back it is 1.439€ locally so very little in it.
Of course the 17th November is a Saturday so it would give the HGV drivers a weekend off 😏

Thinking of; Mavis, Ray, Sandra and Albert at this time.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

A French friend has told us that protesters are calling for a complete stop on all commerce throughout France - a boycott of all shops and banks to send Macron a message. They also say that the protest would continue once a week after unless things improve. They suggest showing support for the protests by displaying a high vis jacket on the dashboard.
Best be prepared.

Two people were able to govern France since the storming of the Bastille: Napoleon
and De Gaulle. No-one else has had an 'ope in 'ell. I am surprised Macron hasn't been thwarted sooner !

In general the French are either fickle or gullible. When their chosen politician doesn't deliver all those promises, change him.

Interesting that the Guardian thinks Trump is more popular than Macron. They say "A little over a year after coming to power, Emmanuel Macron is turning out to be just another run-of-the-mill disappointing French president."
