At the moment the gas customers benefit from the low price of oil of last winter, followed by the price of gas at a distance of approximately 6 months”, clearly Bohg. The current oil price is relevant for gas prices to be expected at the turn of the year, which has become more expensive in recent months to nearly $30 a barrel (159 litres). Given the current level of oil price of just under $70 per barrel we expect for the time in January and February, where the most energy is consumed, across-the-Board price increases of about 5 percent”, so Bohg. Consumers should protect themselves with long-term price guarantees against the looming price increases at the gas in winter. Many vendors currently offer price guarantees of up to one year. Those who also now opt for a provider change, which can save up to 400 euros in addition due to the fierce competition on the gas market in the year”, advises Bohg.
