Prime Minister Victor Ponta yesterday stated, in the beginning of the government meeting, that the natural gas price increase is triggered by the higher imports from Russia. ‘Congratulations to all those who helped us slashing price for electricity. However, I noticed that no one thought that the government had any merit in this, while a headline appeared immediately saying that the government is increasing the gas price. We didn’t increase the gas price, this is just the result of the higher imports that we are forced to make from Russia,’ said Ponta, Agerpres reports. According to him, “the solution to this problem is Romania ‘to produce more gas and I say this especially for those who are against it.” The thing with the price of gas has nothing to do with us, but it’s a clear fact that, the sooner we will be able to produce more gas at home and stop imports from Russia, the better,’ said the Prime Minister.The price of gas for domestic consumers will increase by 2.5 percent as of July 1, while the tariff for industrial consumers will increase by 1.5 percent, Niculae Havrilet, the head of the National Regulatory Authority in the Energy Field (ANRE) said in a recent announcement.
