The variable component of gas prices will drop, head of  the Regulatory Office for Network Industries (ÚRSO), Jozef Holjenčík, told the TASR newswire on July 29. The price cut for households will vary depending on the tariff bracket – the D1 tariff of gas utility SPP will see a contraction of 1.83 percent, while D3 will see a drop of 4.21 percent. A price cut of 3.92 percent will apply to the D2 tariff.

“The Office [ÚRSO] concluded that an intervention in the pricing environment on the domestic gas market was required because despite a cap set on gas prices and suitable conditions for price setting through free competition thus created, prices failed to match sufficiently the falling trend in the price of this commodity on international markets,” Holjenčík added.

The ÚRSO chief noted that SPP has a dominant position on the market, with its price list then also used by the majority of other gas suppliers. “The Office thus decided to change the prices for natural gas supplies provided to households and small businesses by SPP as of September 1,”  Holjenčík concluded.
