From August 1, the gas price for the population will increase by 3%, it follows from the order of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS).

The document is published on the official portal of legal information.

So far, there is no order on gas prices for industry. The document on increasing the price of gas produced by Gazprom and its affiliates was published in April 2020. Then the FAS proposed to raise prices by 3%, not only for the population, but also for industrialists. The new tariffs were supposed to come into effect not from August 1, but from July 1. But the order was issued late.

Recall that in June last year, the FAS issued an order to increase wholesale gas prices for the population and industry from July 1 by 1.4%.

Meanwhile, an interesting situation is developing with automobile gas. Since July 1, this type of fuel has fallen in price by 30% - in Kazakhstan. Changes occurred in the neighboring Orenburg region (where the country's largest gas processing plant is located), but in the opposite direction. There, the price of gas is growing.
