British Gas Prices Top $5.79 a Gallon

LONDON - As rising oil prices pushed gasoline past $5.79 per gallon in Britain, truck drivers threatened strikes and cabbies filling up at the pumps complained about working extra hours to make ends meet.

"You can't do nothing about it, can you mate, given what's going on in the Middle East," said James Sullivan, 50, a driver of one of Britain's traditional black cabs. "I make less money because I can't pass the increase on to my fares, can I?"

Another cabbie who pulled in behind him Wednesday at the Texaco station in central London said, "I'm already working about an hour extra a day to make up what I'm losing in higher gas prices."
