Europe Fuel Protests

Julie McCarthy reports from NPR News in London that protests against high fuel prices have spread to Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. Protests crippled much of France last week. British Prime Minister Tony Blair vowed he will not follow the example of the French government, which yielded to protesters and cut energy taxes. Protesters have blocked refineries and fuel distribution points, cutting supplies to gas stations in England and Wales.
