THE PRESIDENT of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, stated that our country’s gas reserves have dropped to 128 million cubic meters of gas, and that tomorrow one of the most important topics in the conversation with President Vladimir Putin will be – gas for our country.
– For us, gas is a key issue, at this moment we have gas reserves of 128 million cubic meters, and we had 261 million before – said Vučić.
He says that it is because we consume gas every day so as not to import electricity that is higher on the stock exchange than the production price in our country.
Vučić notes that because of that, we do not have to import the necessary quantities of electricity at such high prices, which amount to several million euros on a daily basis.
These are currently huge losses for many countries, and especially for countries in the region.
– The price of gas on the stock exchange was 1,064 dollars in the morning, and we pay 270 dollars for gas, and the price of electricity is between 250 and 300 megawatts in the whole of Europe, while in our country the price is 50 euros per megawatt – stated Vučić.
As he said, only due to the import of electricity, the economies of many countries, middle and lower developed, are falling, and their public debt is growing.
So, the price of gas is of crucial importance for us, Vučić added.
