While inflation is hitting French people's wallets hard, Casino has decided to block the price of gas cylinders in its stores.

This will now be sold at cost price, and at a price that will not change for several weeks.

The measure takes effect this Thursday and will last until March 31, 2022, reports 

Le Parisien

.

For more than two months, the Primagaz bottle will be at €31.88, the Finagaz at €29.29, the Butagaz at €33.06 and the Antargaz bottle at €33.66.

All these prices relate to 13 l bottles sold in Casino supermarkets and hypermarkets located next to a service station.

7% rise in gas prices in six months

“Gas is a symbolic product to which the French are very sensitive,”

a spokeswoman for the Casino group, which sells between 7,000 and 10,000 bottles of gas per week , told Le

Parisien  .

In France, more than 10 million people use it regularly.

However, like many energy sources, gas prices are rising sharply.

Prices have increased by 7% since June 1, 2021. To support household purchasing power during the crisis, Casino also plans to extend its measure to other “great necessity, food and non-food” products. , said the spokeswoman.
