Rusu noted that the gas consumer tariff was increased on the basis of calculations presented earlier by Moldovagaz. The new measures will come into effect on 1 October.

“The cost of natural gas at exit points from low-pressure gas distribution networks for household consumers has increased from 21,296 to 27,103 lei (from $1,100 to $1,395. — Ed.),” he said.

It is noteworthy that the company “Moldovagaz” asked to increase tariffs by 31.5 percent – up to 1376 dollars per thousand cubic meters. According to the head of the company, Vadim Cheban, this is necessary to compensate for the losses of the company – Moldovagaz bought fuel for 1883 dollars in September, and the benefits provided by the government do not cover the accumulated tariff difference.
