Running out of fuel: here’s how to find a stocked gas station near you
Written by madishthestylebar

It is sometimes necessary to travel several kilometers before finding a pump supplied with fuel in recent days. Just over 20% of French service stations were facing supply difficulties on at least one fuel, Saturday October 8 at midday, according to figures from the Ministry of Energy Transition. It means that “79% of stations are operating normally”, reminded the minister, Agnès Pannier-Runacher. Here’s how to find those points of sale near you where diesel and unleaded are available.

Several interactive maps can be used free of charge and updated on a regular basis. Among them, the one published by the government on the prix-carburants.gouv.fr site, which allows motorists to search for a point of sale, according to different criteria (type of fuel, brand, department or municipality).

In addition to this government card, that of the penurie.mon-essence.fr site has resumed service. It is updated using data provided by users and allows you to search by city to find out which fuels are out of stock at the various service stations.

Finally, for those who favor stations in the TotalEnergies network, the group has published a map listing all of its sites in France and around the world, and displays theare prices and fuel availability. Lhe French firm specifies that it is “regularly updated”. The date of the last update of the information is communicated for each point of sale.

For those who prefer to use a mobile app, similar services are also made available. Like Waze, the GPS application that provides information updated by its users. Since September 27, when the refinery strike began, we have seen a 33% increase in daily browsing over the previous three weeks, peaking at 59% on October 3.”detailed on Friday Jérôme Marty, director of Waze France, on BFMTV.

Available on iPhone and Android, the Gasoil Now, Essence & Co and Gaspal apps can also be useful. The first two propose to find and compare the prices of all fuels in the referenced service stations. They combine official government map data and user reports. Gaspal works on the same principle, but only on the basis of reports from individuals.
