Another STRIKE on the POCKET: Gas for households in Serbia also rises in price
Gas for households is 9% more expensive.
At Srbijagas, a cubic meter of gas has so far cost 32.28 dinars, and now citizens will pay 35.11 dinars excluding VAT, RTS reports.
The gas price for the guaranteed supply last went up in 2017.
Approval for the price increase was given a month ago by the Energy Agency.
In May, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic talked on the phone with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, when the main elements of the new gas agreement were agreed on, according to which the formula previously used remained the same, which, as Vucic said at the time, was very favourable for Serbia.
In June this year, Srbijagas signed an agreement with the Hungarian company MVM CEEnergy, under which Serbia will be able to store gas in Hungary during winter.
