Amid reports that France only has a measly ten days worth of fuel left, it comes as no surprise that the French Premier has discovered an alternative means to powering cars in France.
Sarkozy is now dishing out "USB Powerpoints" which will power his cars. Users simply have to insert the USB into the port, and the car will be topped up with 200 miles.
The company behind it, Virgin Media, even offered £1.00 free credit for every £200 bought: a similar offer available on all Pay as you Talk deals.
However, there is a catch, amid rumours that the powerpoints are only powered up by Romanians on treadmills.
In other news, Napoleon's Castle is set to be reinstated and to include the "Moving Walkway Fastly" Round. Millions of petrol points to be made.
