In Italy there is no fuel for 48 hours. This was announced by three unions. The walkout begins at 7 p.m. and continues through Thursday at the same time. From 10 p.m. onwards, there should be no more fuel at motorway filling stations for 48 hours. The trade unions Faib, Fegica and Figisc/Anisa called on their members not to allow self-service during this time either.

The background to the industrial action is the actions of the government of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in the fight against the rise in fuel prices. Among other things, the financial police were instructed to check petrol stations for possibly unjustified price increases.
