The prices of gas for households will be reduced by 4.87 percent on average and for small companies by 6.59 percent as of July 4, chairman of the Office for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO) Jozef Hojlenčík announced at a press conference on June 2.

For example, the rate for the D1 tariff group (cooking) will be reduced to a maximum of 4.81 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). This will lower the annual payments for a household in this tariff group by €1.07, the TASR newswire reported.
