Nude man from Germany protests against the fuel prices

07 April 2010 [18:09] - TODAY.AZ
A German man apparently angry over high petrol prices staged an unusual protest - by buying his petrol completely naked (except for a pair of shoes).
The unnamed man drove his Renault Scenic into the Shell petrol station in Bad Klosterlausnitz, Germany, while wearing only a pair of black shoes.

Station manager Frank Hollmotz, 25 said: 'I guess he didn't want to get his feet dirty. He climbed out of the car in full view of the CCTV cameras and filled up - then walked into the shop to pay. He then went back to the forecourt and climbed into his car and left.'

Staff said they would not file a complaint with police, as the naked protest hadn't made staff feel threatened - and they added that they were not exactly sure if it was even a crime, as the petrol station is private property.

There were several angry protests in Germany over Easter after petrol companies were accused of driving up prices ahead of the Easter holiday. It's not clear exactly how buying your petrol naked makes this point.
