Energy crisis: Left calls for gas price reduction after Uniper nationalization

After the nationalization of the gas company Uniper, the left is demanding price reductions for consumers. "If the citizens save these companies with their tax billions, the pricing must be reversed in their favor," says parliamentary group leader Dietmar Bartsch. An effective price cap is needed, similar to that in other European countries. Federal Minister of Economics Robert "Habeck is now called upon to ensure that prices fall in order to protect citizens and companies from financial ruin," said Bartsch.

Habeck had previously announced that the federal government would take over around 98.5 percent of Uniper. Uniper is in trouble because Russia is no longer pumping gas to Germany. The company has to buy the missing gas from Russia on the gas market at a high price. The gas wholesaler is a supplier for more than 100 municipal utilities and large companies and thus plays a central role in Germany's natural gas supply.
