Millions of Germans may not be able to pay their heating bills in this winter

Aug 11, 2022

The rise in natural gas prices caused by the reduction of Russian gas supplies has hit European lives. According to the "Russia Today" website local time on the 8th, the German Tenants Association said that due to the shortage of natural gas and energy prices soaring, millions of low-income Germans may not be able to pay heating bills.

Germany is highly dependent on Russian natural gas, and the current natural gas supply is seriously insufficient, and energy demand will continue to rise in the second half of the year. German Deputy Chancellor and Minister of Economy and Climate Protection Habeck previously said that the gas surcharge will be introduced from October, and each German household is expected to spend hundreds of euros extra for this. The German people are bound to usher in an "expensive winter".
