France's promise on fuel money

President Macron has insisted he wants to help less well-off households with fuel bills despite standing his ground over higher taxes on vehicle fuel.

He said he wants to roll out nationally a scheme in Hauts-de-France giving €20/month to those earning less than twice the minimum wage who commute by car more than 30km/day. It also wants it to be made tax-exempt.

The chèque énergie, which helps households on modest incomes pay heating bills, is also being boosted, rising from an average €150 to €200 next year and being given to 5.6million households up from 3.6m.
