price of per barrel. Alone in the four metro cities, the prices have gone up by
at least INR 3 adding more worries in the list of the consumers.
the politics behind this rising price strategy let it be. But, some anti-social
elements of the nation are always looking for the ways to disrupt the peace of
the nation by any means they can.
time, with the rising prices of the crude oil in the nation a message on social
media is going viral claiming that the citizens of Germany abandoned their cars
in the middle of the roads against the rising prices of fuel in their country
and this forced their government to roll back the raised prices. This time the
message is going viral along with the actual picture of a traffic jam.
Fake Message -
In Germany the government has
increased fuel price. In just one hour of time people abandoned their cars on
the streets and avenues and walked home. Over a million abandoned cars. They
had to had to lower the price. When the people are smart the corrupt government

The sad truth about the picture is that while the jam and
people are real, this traffic jam is not even remotely related to the rising

which was 6 years ago.

European country but an Asian Country.
This traffic jam was almost 100 km long in length and is
regarded as the mother of all traffic jams.
The traffic jam was reportedly caused
by a new toll station checkpoint, which cut down the lanes on the highway from
50 to 20, as well as foggy weather.
