But it can triple the previous gas tariff,” Müller told ntv. Hebek, on RTL “Nachtjournal”, said when asked if he could imagine gas bills trembling: “It cannot be ruled out.” This is within the range of possibilities: “So the price wave is coming to Germany, and it can no longer be avoided because prices have already accumulated.”

Mல்லller sees the real danger of a gas crisis in Germany. “I will do everything I can to avoid freezing in private homes,” he told ntv, “but I’m very concerned that we can maintain such industrial production.” The more gas is stored, the less impact the industry will face. “Anyone who stores gas and stores it helps avoid jobs, added value and companies being undervalued.”
