Hello all,

I'm due to go to France for a week, setting off this weekend. I'm planning to go to a small town about an hour or so inland from Calais. I'm going with a group of friends but a couple of them are concerned about the situation regarding petrol, supplies etc.

So, I'd like to ask anyone living in France how bad the situation really is, I recognise that it's probably quite different for those in Paris so any information from people living in small towns in the north of the coutnry would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

On that link
you will find an interactive map of the "empty" filling stations.

No problem with other supplies, as far as I know.

Hope this helps.

I'm not in France, but there's some info here about availability of petrol:
