A Virtual Book Tour Podcast for the book "Fuel", an account of how in 2000, an organized protest by lorry drivers, farmers and fishermen, who were being squeezed out of existence by the high price of fuel in the U.K., blocked entrances to numerous oil refineries in England, and brought the country to an unexpected standstill.
