Gazprom plans gas price increase

On December 6, the Pravda daily reported that as of January, the SPP gas utility is going to hike natural gas prices for companies by about four percent as a result of recent talks with Russian company Gazprom-Export.

The hike is not aimed at households but it is probable, the daily warned, that private clients will feel the effects during the year.
