The diesel fuel tax, has gone up seven euro cents (nearly eight U.S. cents) and will keep climbing in coming years, according to Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne. The tax on gasoline is set to increase four euro cents. Gasoline currently costs about 1.64 euros a liter in Paris ($7.06 a gallon), slightly more than diesel.

Macron, however, has said that gas tax increases are necessary to reduce France’s dependence on fossil fuels and fund renewable energy investments.

The angry clashes, both in Paris and other towns and cities across the country, marks the eighth day of “yellow jacket” protests against the tax, but have also come to encompass a growing anger against Macron and the French ruling class -- seen by many as out of touch.


Gosh....how is he going to fund the European Military to stop an invasion from United States???

You see.....this is yet another example of the leftist folly......we have human derived global warming and therefore we need to tax the people to extinction.

The socialists don't do the heavy lifting......remember??

Just like the leftists in America.
