Don’t fly to France (without the fuel to fly back again)

Strikes in France have shut down oil refineries are being blocked by protesters and fuel shortages are beginning to bite.

France has been plagued by a number of strikes in recent weeks after President Nicolas Sarkozy announced plans to raise the retirement age to 62.

Eric Heraud, a spokesman from the Civil Aviation Authority has advised airlines flying into Charles de Gaulle Airport, to ensure they have enough fuel to make the return journey. However, French finance minister, Christine Lagarde, has urged drivers not to panic, stating that there are weeks of fuel stocks available.

However, fuel stocks at Charles de Gaulle were thought to run out by Tuesday.

Some three million people marched on Saturday in protest of Sarkozy’s plans to raise the retirement age.
