France’s Gasoline Use Fell 12% in September, Industry Group Says

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Gasoline consumption in France dropped 12 percent in September from a year earlier, according to the Union Francaise des Industries Petrolieres, an industry group based in Paris.

Diesel demand decreased 5 percent in the period, the group, known as UFIP, said today in an e-mailed statement.

Fuel consumption, which was stable in 2011, has been declining since the start of 2012, Jean-Louis Schilansky, the group’s president, said in the statement. Year-on-year consumption had slipped in prior months because of the rise in fuel prices, he said.
