For the first day of the All Saints holidays, many French people have taken to the road today.

Departures against the background of rising fuel prices two days after the boost of 100 euros announced by Prime Minister Jean Castex to help the French cope with this increase.


The aid is aimed at the 38 million people who earn less than 2,000 euros per month. This inflation bonus is on everyone's mind when going on vacation. "I quickly put 20 euros, just to finish my trip, but it's true that we no longer put a full as before, it is no longer so simple", explains Farid at the microphone of Europe 1 for a Paris region motorway area. The salary of this father is too high to touch the inflation check. "Just a little above, whereas it would have done me good to have these 100 euros", he affirms before adding that the current prices of gasoline are "exaggerated, I have not the memory of ever having put in such expensive gasoline ". In his opinion, "it is not becausewe touch a little more than we are less in need than the others ".


 "Inflation allowance" of 100 euros: "It's always good to take"

A solution deemed "electoralist"

To compensate, the father of the family saves by reducing outings.

In the same area, Pierre fills up at the pump.

He is not affected by the measure, "but finds it good to have chosen and targeted only those who need it".

Other motorists denounce a short-term solution, even electoralist, six months before the presidential election.
