German Govt Warns Gas May Run Out over the Winter Months


    by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart:

    German Federal Economy Minister Robert Habeck expressed concern over the looming energy crisis this winter, telling German media that the situation was extremely tense and there is a possibility that Germany may run out of gas.

    Habeck spoke on Friday, appealing to Germans to reduce their consumption of natural gas ahead of this winter a day after the German government launched a new price break programme to help Germans with the rising costs of energy.

    The new price break policy will cover 80 per cent of regular consumption in a bid to try and get Germans to use less gas and make the scenario of shortages less likely.

    “For the upper 20 per cent of normal consumption, you will certainly have to pay the full bill,” Habeck told broadcaster Deutschlandfunk Radio, Reuters reports.

    Habeck added that Germany was facing an “extremely tense situation” ahead of the winter and added: “If we don’t save, if households don’t reduce consumption, we still risk not having enough gas in the winter.”

    The appeal to Germans comes after Habeck claimed last week that German gas storage was at 90 per cent capacity and stated that Germany should get through the winter months “comfortably”.
