Petrol Station

Cars wait to buy fuel at a petrol station in Lagos , Nigeria, Monday, Jan. 2, 2012. Nigeria is ending fuel subsidies, an official said Sunday, a move that is sure to be unpopular in the oil-rich nation where citizens have come to expect cheap fuel as one of their few government benefits. The government has said the move will save the country some $8 billion, some of which will be dedicated to much-needed infrastructure projects. Previous attempts to lift the subsidies have been met with nationwide strike actions. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
