In Ecuador, demonstrators take to the streets to protest the rising cost of living.

The high cost of living is pushing people to take to the streets to protest the exorbitant prices of key commodities. The BBC has mapped all reported protests over fuel since January 2021, revealing a huge increase in protests this year.

The cost of fuel affects many aspects of daily life: personal travel, transportation of goods, which can drive up food prices, and energy for electricity and heating.

Around the world, protesters have called for change. They demanded that gasoline become more affordable or that it be available. They participated in peaceful protests and attacked governments. And some paid an even higher price.
