March gas bills expected be 50% higher
Gas bills for this month are expected to be 50% higher than for the same period last year, Professor Johan Albrecht from Ghent University told Het Nieuwsblad. The estimate takes into account a 20% increase in gas prices. Suppliers have already delivered 38% more gas to private customers than in March last year according to readings taken before the latest cold snap. Gas consumption recorded by supplier Fluxys on Saturday stood at 766 GWh, almost double the consumption for the same period last year (428 GWh).
