Germany activates gas alert level over drop in Russian deliveries

Utility companies will not yet have the ability to raise gas prices, however, the sources said. The alarm stage (stage two of three) normally allows utilities to pass on high prices to customers to lower demand.

Germany is rushing to reduce its dependence on Russian energy, as Moscow cuts gas supplies to Western countries in retaliation for sanctions imposed on the sidelines of the war in Ukraine.

According to experts, it is only a matter of time before Germany is completely cut off from Russian energy, either by political decisions or by the will of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
