The price of gas for the population will depend on the region where they live.

About this in comments to UNN said the former head of Department on public relations NAK “Naftogaz Ukraine”, an independent expert on energy issues Valentin Zemlyansky.

“It will be quite interesting. NERC decided on a fixed rate for “Ukrtransgaz”, so if you take the average, we get 8247 UAH, if not mistaken, but in fact in may the price of gas will vary depending on the size of the population. In big cities the price of gas will be lower, and in small towns, where consumers are less and they are located away from each other, there is the price will be higher”, – said the expert.

According to Zemlyansky, in June the situation will be the same.

“There is, first, the price to go up, it already will be, I may be wrong, 8623 UAH and will not exceed 8% of differential. It will be lower. This, for example, Kiev, Zaporozhye, Dnieper. And where above. The most expensive gas to get consumers “Nikolayevgaz”, – said V. Zemlyanskyy.

The expert explains this situation by the fact that “Naftogaz” it is necessary to increase the cash flow to accumulate funds. At that time, as the state has withdrawn from social policy.
