Drivers in Romania are protesting high fuel prices by blockading gas stations. 

The price of diesel fuel has alarmingly increased by nearly 80% in the last 12 months and is now more expensive than some of its European neighbors.

Gas stations have been blocked in several Romanian cities.

 Hundreds of drivers were stranded outside gas stations today due to protests over the small amount of fuel in their tanks.

As the number of protesters grew and the lines got longer, law enforcement came to try to disperse them.
