Thus, according to the regulation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated April 3, 2019, Naftogaz calculated the new price for the natural gas for the needs of the population and other consumers.
“Consequently, the gas price, provided by Naftogaz in August to the gas suppliers and consumers, is established at the level of $184 for thousand of cubic meters (without VAT and transport costs). In comparison with June, the price of gas will decrease by %5.1,” the message reads.
The company noted that the final price of gas in the regions of Ukraine depends on the tariff on the distribution of gas established by the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission for particular regional or city gas facility. The gas suppliers are obliged to inform their consumers about the final price.
Generally, the gas price for the population and other protected consumers reduced by 25.4% since April.
