Romanians’ problem with indoor toilets

Lithuania

Starting from January 2019 Lithuanian households’ bills for the electricity and natural gas will increase 15-20 per cent. The prices for businesses will be up as much as 30-60 per cent. The Baltic Times informs that Lietuvos Energijos Tiekimas (LET), the electricity and natural gas supplier, explained that “The end price for consumers may rise by about 15 per cent because of an increase of almost 40 per cent in electricity prices on the international market. Higher prices on the Nord Pool electricity market are among the key reasons behind the price growth”.

Our recommendations are still the same.”
