Trucking companies in Poland are considering following the leads of other European nations by blockading the country's oil refineries to protest rising fuel prices.

According to the Agence France Press, representatives of about 20 regional truck transportation organizations are planning to meet today to discuss further actions, said Anna Wrona of the Association of Polish International Transporters.
The association groups together more than 4,000 companies with a fleet of nearly 200,000 trucks.
Poland imports nearly all of its crude oil, which is refined inside the country.
Fuel prices have risen sharply over the past several months, putting intense pressure on Polish farmers and truckers who use considerable amounts of diesel.
