Household natural gas prices expected to increase in 2019
Rising grid fees, increased wholesale prices, and the high oil price level will likely lead to rising natural gas prices for household consumers in 2019, writes the price comparison website CHECK24 in a press release. Grid fees, which make up about one quarter of household gas prices, will on average increase by about one percent. However, there are big regional differences: while grid fees decrease in eastern Germany, they increase in the northern and western parts of the country, writes CHECK24.
