Gas prices are soaring. They are already 12 times higher than the seasonal average

The week started badly in terms of gas prices on the exchanges. In Europe, the quotations of the raw material rose by about 2.5% on Tuesday, increasing the increase from Monday (6.8%). As a result, gas contracts are concluded at EUR 225.50 per MWh.

The scale of the energy crisis is evidenced by the fact that gas prices are currently around 12 times higher than the seasonal average over the past five years.

Experts note that hot and dry weather in Europe has caused water levels in rivers to drop sharply, making it difficult to transport energy resourcesincluding fuel oil and coal.
