Energy prices: a relief for communities
In view of the rising prices of electricity, gas and gasoline, the Association of Towns and Municipalities is asking the federal government for higher subsidies for heating costs for people with low incomes. “We are witnessing an explosion in energy prices, particularly gas. It is clear that energy should not be just for the rich. Thus, the next federal government is called upon to support in particular financially weak families and to mitigate the explosion of heating costs “, said the managing director of the association Gerd Landsberg. Landsberg also warned against higher costs for municipalities The sharp rise in gas prices “would hit many municipalities hard,” Landsberg said.
