    Gas prices may hit the roof.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 17 Jun 2014, 12:57 pm

    Now that Russia has closed the tap on the gas pipeline to Ukraine, ( and via it supplies to the EU and eventually Britain ), are we going to see gas prices hit a new high even although these wholesale prices are at an all-time low at the moment ?

    Read THIS analysis published in The Telgraph today.




    Russia has used their gas-wealth as a bargaining-chip many times in the past, and it now looks as if they are going start to do this again.

    Has anybody any ideas what we should do about this ?

    I don't think there is much we can do about this threat, and Russia knows it.

    Our best way to attack this threat is to stop using imported gas and to do the best we can with our own supplies.

    Putin is the worst kind of a bully and nobody knows this more than the Ukraine.

    Nobody should ever give in to a bully !Evil or Very Mad

    I am with you on that one Zath'.

    Just like the Arabs, ( OPEC ), held us to ransom over oil reserved a few years ago, now the Russian gas supplies are to be used in exactly the same way.
