Italian motorway gas stations declare three-day strike
Protest against high prices28 June, 18:30
Service-station industry groups Faib Confesercenti, Fegica Cisl and Anisa Confcommercio announced in a joint statement that motorway service stations will lock their pumps from 22:00 on July 16 to 6:00 on July 19. ''Freeway and petroleum companies are fighting over the fuel 'spoils' on the freeway, with the complicity of the silence of the industry minister,'' the service station groups complained.
Meanwhile service station ''managers are being fired and consumers are paying for the most expensive gasoline in Europe,'' the statement said.
