No Gazoline

Quieter streets
Sign saying 'unleaded finished'

The owners of gas transport trucks are on strike. It's happened before (e.g. 2008). Today is the third day with long lines in front of gas stations. Their problem is the "economic measures" the government puts on them. The tourist season does not seem really much of their concern - or rather, they may counting on it leading to maximum annoyance of everybody.

The streets are much quieter then they usually are. People use their cars as little as possible. There doesn't seem to be much understanding for the truckers, given that the economic stuff they will now have to put up with is not at all much worse than what everybody else is facing (and some people got it really a lot harder).
