5 min

The strikes that have hit French oil refineries and storage sites will continue on Monday, CGT trade union representatives at TotalEnergies and ExxonMobil's Esso France told Reuters on Monday. The strikes have added pressure on President Emmanuel Macron's government, which is already facing discontent among the public over inflation and higher household bills.

Some vocabulary to understand the video:

Supply - to make something needed or wanted available to someone.

Refinery - an industrial installation where a substance is refined.

Strike - a refusal to work organized by a body of employees as a form of protest, typically in an attempt to gain a concession or concessions from their employer.

Shortage - a state or situation in which something required cannot be obtained in sufficient amounts.
