The protest, which diminished in strength as the afternoon wore on, was the latest in a series of demonstrations over recent weeks fueled by anger over gas prices.

The government recently lowered the price by about 25 cents to $4.50 a gallon and diesel prices dropped by about 20 cents to $3.55, but protesters say the reductions don’t fully reflect the global drop in oil prices. via | Fox News4c5f778a228c7f066d0f6a706700d093 150f6d80228a7f066d0f6a7067006c13.
