The government is trying to find a solution to stem the rise in fuel prices. The journalist Anne Bourse provides details live from the Hôtel de Matignon, in Paris, for the 19/20 of France 3.

Several signals show that the government is actively working to find a solution to the increase in fuel prices. Thursday, October 14, Emmanuel Macron promised not to leave any French in disarray. In the evening, Prime Minister Jean Castex gathered around him several ministers in Matignon. “Emmanuel Macron said this morning that answers would be provided in the coming days”, precise journalist Anne Bourse, live from the Hôtel de Matignon, in Paris, for the 19/20.

Among the avenues considered, is the reduction of taxes, “but unlikely to be successful”, adds the journalist, who explains: “Firstly because it would be very expensive, and secondly, it would concern everyone. But here, at Matignon, we explain that it is a question of remaining consistent both in terms of the environment and also of to help those who need it most, namely motorists who have no choice and who use their cars every day to go to work and who have low incomes. ”
