Protester Sprays Gasoline at Police During Demonstration Against Fuel Price Cap in Mexico

A protester sprayed gasoline at police officers during a gas-vendor demonstration in Mexico City on October 11, leading to his arrest, according to officials.

Gasoline suppliers protested after the government refused their demands to increase gas prices by one peso per kilo, according to Mexico News Daily, with distributers’ earnings decreasing since Mexico’s Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) set price caps on liquefied petroleum gas.
