Just got back from a road trip through France. We turned left at Calais for fear of no fuel, instead hit the mother of all rain storms. Ended up driving right down to Cannes and back up via Le Havre. Saw only 1 petrol station with no 98RON, completely over exaggerated from what I saw.

Roads are still scr3wed from the floods though especially south west of Paris so keep an eye on the traffic forecasts.

From what I have seen from going over about 12 days ago, there isn't an issue at the, there was a shortage for a couple of days then back to normal. The Total station as you come off the tunnel had fuel right in the middle of the strike and most of the Autoroutes were fine.

Fuel strike finished here in France since two weeks. Nothing to worry about (so far ...).
