Bulgaria: Outgoing Bulgaria’s Premier “Presented” Bulgarians with 24-Percent Natural Gas Price Rise

The right-hand man of Hristo Ivanov, MP of Democratic Bulgaria Hristo Mirchev, posted on his Facebook wall quite worrying news, given that the price of natural gas leads to price adjustments of almost everything. That is why the information that the "post-election" price of natural gas is jumping dramatically is, to put it mildly, alarming for Bulgarians in general.


The post-election rise in the price of natural gas from May 1 is expected to be by a record 22% - 24% compared to the price in March. A pre-election probe into Bulgargaz by the Energy Ministry, which aimed solely to postpone the inevitable appreciation, has quietly ended. As expected, no violations were found. Thus, retrospectively, the energy regulator can now announce an increase in the price of natural gas from April 1 by 12% - 13% and start considering the expected higher price by 10-11% from May 1.

A direct consequence of Borisov's dependencies is the lack of supply options alternative to Russian natural gas. Thus, we all pay unreasonably high monopoly prices.

This is the belated “present” from Boyko Borissov to Bulgarian households and businesses. Belated but heartfelt.
