Gas price for the European consumers of "Gazprom" in 2009 will average about $220 for one thousand cubic meter. I reported about it today to the vice-president of board of "Gazprom", the general director of "Gazpromexport" Alexander Medvedev.
Answering a question what on the average the price will be for the European consumers in 2009, he declared that "it will be lower than $250, maybe, about $220 for one thousand cubic meter". It reminded that such change in the gas market is connected "with falling of prices of oil and oil products".
From "Regional committee": That is, taking into account the discount promised by Putin in 20%, in Ukraine gas has to cost 176 dollars for one thousand cubic meters.>
