Sal Risalvato of the New Jersey Gasoline, Convenience, Automotive Association says Wednesday's protest is aimed at getting Lukoil to respond to the grievances of the dealers.
He says Lukoil engages in various practices that forces its franchisees to pay higher prices for their fuel than their competitors.
The New York offices of Lukoil North America said a spokesman was not available for comment.
Lukoil is Russia's second-largest oil producer. The first Lukoil-branded service stations in the U.S. opened in 2003 and today the company has over 500 Lukoil-branded stations in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
