A nationwide strike in France on Jan. 31 disrupted fuel deliveries and power production, as workers joined the protests against the government's planned pension reform that would see the retirement age pushed up by two years to 64, Reuters reported. Energy utility Electricite de France S.A. said that French power production dropped by about 5%, while the strike also blocked petroleum product deliveries from French multi-energy company TotalEnergies SE's site.
