PARIS BURNS: Riot police fire tear gas as 30,000 protestors furious at Macron hit France

The protests are over nationwide fury about the rise of fuel costs with diesel, the most commonly used fuel in French cars, rising by around 23 percent over the past 12 months to an average of €1.51 (£1.32) per litre.

The cost of the fuel is at its highest in France since the millennium.

o make matters worse, French President Emmanuel Macron then raised the nation’s hydrocarbon tax this year by 7.6 cents per litre on diesel and 3.9 cents on petrol as on January 1 2019.

He did this under a campaign for cleaner cars and fuel - but this was seen as the final straw by demonstrators.

Mr Macron blamed rising world oil prices for the price rise and added more tax on fossil fuels was needed to fund renewable energy investments. (Yeah, right)

Tired old schtick. Sounds like someone is getting nervous that inauguration day is coming.

Conservatives hate change.

If it was up to you we'd be still pouring old oil down the street gutter.

Oil has improved our lives immensely. The benefits far outweigh the manageable risks.
