Uber drivers protest high gas prices at Detroit Metro Airport

Dozens of ride-booking drivers held a protest at Detroit Metro Airport on Monday night due to high gas prices.

Ride-hailing drivers say they want to charge passengers more money because of the high cost of fuel. More than a dozen police cruisers were on the scene Monday in the Uber lot at the airport as they tried to control the situation.

Officials told the Uber drivers that they would have to leave the lot if they did not have the app or a run to make, as they are not allowed to protest at the airport.

Police say they did threaten to tow and evict some of the Uber drivers Monday who were refusing to pick up any fares due to their sit-in.

The sit-in protest was to get the attention of Uber in hopes of receiving help due to the high gas prices.
