of anybody. Roughly taking a look at the increase, I see it's on the scale of monthly fluctuation of gas at our pump stations. (This is perhaps the reason why Macron stands firm so far and won't make any compromise). But the people's reaction to this modest change is much stronger. This tells you the protest is probably about more than the merely the modest carbon tax. of course, I hope Macron abandon all the carbon taxes. That's a different topic.
