There is a strong likelihood that at the end of the heating season, the cost of gas will increase.
This was announced by the expert of housing and communal services Oleg Golubenko.
“It is likely that at the end of the heating season, the cost of gas will increase,” he said.
As the expert explained, the gas should rise in price even in the fall, but decided not to review due to certain political moments, it was the discontent of the population.
“However, it is likely that at the end of the heating season will again be a question of revising gas prices, which has two components: 87% — the cost of gas as a commodity and a 13% delivery charge gas and its distribution. Prices for delivery and distribution regulates NKREKU, and the cost of gas directly regulates the Cabinet in manual mode. If they have political expediency to count the cost of gas upwards, they will do it. If such feasibility is not, then they will find a way to amend the Ordinance (No. 187, which approved the method of calculating the cost of gas — ed.) in order not to revise the price of gas,” – said Golubenko.
According to him, the government will look at what risks there are in this solution (raising prices — ed.), after 2018 precedes the year of elections.
“In order to 2019 to implement the script of his second term, it is likely that the cost of gas will rise at the end of the heating season, so people got used to the new price before next winter, or not at all will revise this price. But I am more inclined to the fact that in the spring the price of gas will reconsider to not make it fall,” – said the expert.
We will remind, in Ukraine came into force the law, which carries a mandatory installation of gas meters by 2021.
