FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Unsustainable recovery? Gas prices surge as global demand fuels energy crunch” – below is their description.

A coronavirus shut down the world economy. Now, will an energy crunch stop the recovery in its tracks? Europeans who scoffed at Britain’s post-Brexit shortage of fuel truckers are no longer laughing as they watch their natural gas bills go through the roof. And just as Covid exposed how vulnerable humanity’s become to taut global supply chains for such basics as pharmaceuticals and face masks, those same supply chains are now out of whack what with whole world putting in factory orders at the same time.
