TEGUCIGALPA – Bus and taxi drivers in Honduras warned on Sunday that if the government refuses to lower fuel prices, they will go on strike again.
The work stoppage is planned from 5:00 am (1100 GMT) Monday.
“Only God or the president (Juan Orlando Hernandez) can stop it,” Jorge Lanza, an urban transport manager, told reporters.
He said he hopes the government representatives will “take off their hats of pride and put on the humility suit so we can get out of this conflict.”
Bus and taxi drivers earlier went on strike for two days.
They are demanding a reduction of 20 lempiras ($0.82) on a gallon (3.8 liters) of fuel.
