Heating costs in Germany fall due to mild winter temperatures
German heating costs between October 2017 and February 2018 were down several percent compared to the same period the previous year, price comparison website check24 says in a press release. The main reason for lower costs was a “relatively mild winter,” check24 says, meaning customers used 7 percent less energy. Costs for natural gas heating fell by 9 percent and costs for oil heating by 2 percent, bringing them roughly in line with one another, it adds.
