Bruno Le Maire, Minister of Economy, proposed Monday that a new fuel allowance be introduced for those who must use their car to get to work. However, income is required.
Bruno Le Maire, France Inter, stated that the government is working to provide more generous compensation to all people who are required to drive to work. This applies to employees as well as students.
He said that it would be paid "accordingly to the level of income", but did not specify the ceiling that could be set. That will be left up to the parliamentary discussion on the purchasing power package.
The Mayor explained that this aid would go beyond the compensation for "big riders", which is to say those who travel more than 12,000km per year.
To offset the rising oil prices, a discount of 18 centimes per liter has been offered at the pump to all motorists starting April 1. The Purchasing Power Law will propose that it be extended until April 31. End of August
Already, the Minister of Economy proposed to the opposition that this aid be extended until the end the year.
