Gas, two pieces of good news: Putin’s mistakes and falling bills

Two pieces of good news, both on the gas front. The first, which has been evident for several weeks now, is that Vladimir Putin has miscalculated because Europe, blackmailed by Moscow, has found a way to free itself from an energy point thanks to storage, alternative supplies and reduced consumption. The other, coupled with steadily falling gas prices, is that bills will come down significantly with the next Arera Energy Agency survey.

The President of the EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, spoke before the plenary session of the Parliament in Strasbourg to formalize the first goal, which was to become largely independent of Russia in the case of deliveries from Russia. Since the beginning of the war against Ukraine unleashed by Russia, we in the EU have “completely abolished Russian coal” and “reduced” Moscow’s dependence on oil. Russian President Vladimir “Putin decided to cut gas supplies by 80% and that was a big strategic mistake because we got out of his grip”.

In other words, Arera President Stefano Besseghini, speaking on Radio 24, confirms that the trend in gas bills will reverse with the next polls, and consistently: “It will certainly depend on what happens in the next twenty days happens, that 20% we’re talking about could be a number that will consolidate barring any particularly weird facts in the coming days.”
