As you can see below, the extract shows the French journalist n°2 and her boom operator positioning themselves between the cars of two motorists in the queue, one of whom is obviously impatient, trying to overtake the other. “The lady, she’s been in line for three hours,” the investigative journalist can be heard saying.

On Thursday, October 13, Télé-Loisirs reached out to Élise Lucet, who provided some background, explaining that the scene dates back to last weekend and that she was shooting a report for journalists on the fuel shortage which is currently affecting the country. “Like everyone else, I stood in line for almost an hour last weekend.

As a reminder, the employees of the Esso-ExxonMobil refineries and the TotalEnergie group have been on strike for several weeks.

They are demanding higher wages, and as a result of the social movement, and the recent double rebate imposed by the government and TotalEnergies on diesel and gasoline prices, many service stations have run out of reserves.

The report by Élise Lucet, who will also meet some of the strikers from these refineries, will be broadcast on France 2 on Thursday 13 October.
