The new gas, district heating and hot water prices are already in force. There will be an increase in Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Pleven, Veliko Tarnovo, Vratsa and Razgrad. No change in the price of heating in Rousse, Pernik, Sliven and Gabrovo is expected, as the district heating works with coal, BNR reports.

It was finally decided that district heating and hot water prices rose by between 2 and 9 per cent for the different cities in the country, the national radio points out. Thus, the most expensive service will be for the consumers in Sofia, Plovdiv and Veliko Tarnovo. In these cities the heat is already worth BGN 110 per megawatt hours. The increase in these cities is the highest and reaches 9 per cent.
At the end of last week, the energy regulator decided that natural gas would rise by nearly 14% and a thousand cubic meters would be sold for 457 leva without taxes and levies.
The cheapest district heating is in Bourgas - about 80 leva per kilowatt hour. There will be an increase of 5-6% for the district heating in Pleven, Vratsa and Razgrad, while in Varna it will be of 2%.

There could be a new increase in the price of gas from the New Year, said the chairman of the energy regulator Ivan Ivanov. "The increase in the price of natural gas for the first quarter of 2019 will be less than five percent and it will not lead to an increase in the price of heat," he said. Ivanov again insisted on the social protection of the poor. "It is normal practice to pay the real price for a good or service, but people who can not pay can be helped through the social assistance system," said Ivan Ivanov.
