France Grinds To Literal Halt As Authorities Impose Fuel Consumption Restrictions

The strike that was supposed to be over two weeks ago refuses to go away. In the meantime, we get the following headline: "Local French Authorities say have imposed fuel consumption restrictions for the public in Normandy due to shortages." And yet Sarkozy promised that the country has more than enough fuel to last it through the strike. How could fearless leaders be possibly lying?

More as we get it but pretty soon it seems France will literally grind to a halt.
