    Please be aware that due to industrial action at the refineries,a lot of garages in the Normandy area either have no diesel at all,or are limiting sales to around 20 litres.We were in long queues yesterday near Honfluer and things didn't improve as headed further North.

    Petrol seemed ok but was affected by the queueing to get diesel as they are from the same dispenser.

    Currently in Concarneau.
    Report from friends who have just left this site and driven past a LeClerc on the edge of town that there was a fuel delivery truck dropping off fuel and queues were at the pumps.
    As an aside, the French Government have authorised fuel deliveries this weekend. Ordinarily France does not have non fresh produce HGV's on their roads at the weekend.
