Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek says that the ministry welcomes Russian gas distributor Gazprom's decision to reduce gas prices for Europe, ministry spokesman Vahram Chuguryan told the TASR newswire on November 12.

The ministry is now calling on Slovak gas distributor Slovensky plynarensky priemysel (SPP) to follow suit. Chuguryan said that the ministry has warned the Russian government and Gazprom that if gas prices for Europe reach an unacceptable level, it will lose some of its customers.

But SPP took the decrease in oil and gas prices globally into account before proposing gas prices for Slovak households as of January 2009, SPP spokesman Ľubomír Tuchscher said on November 12. TASR
