Thousands of demonstrators march to protest a sudden 20 percent fuel price hike imposed by the Mexican government in Mexico City, Mexico on January 7, 2017. The gasolinazo – as the price hike is known – took effect on January 1. The Mexican central bank has warned that gas price increases would likely contribute to inflation at a time when the peso has already weakened significantly against the US dollar.
