Gas price in Europe for the first time exceeded a 1000$ per one cubic meters

The price of one cubic meters of gas on the European market for the first time in history exceeded the threshold of one thousand US dollars (about 855 euros),- DW reports.

Due to the shortage of gas in Europe, exchange prices for energy carriers in recent weeks have risen by more than 250 percent.

The International Energy Agency (IEA), as well as dozens of MEPs, amid a sharp rise in prices, suspected the Russian state concern Gazprom of manipulating the market. Moscow was skeptical about such claims.

The US administration intends, together with European partners, to monitor cases of possible manipulation of prices for gas supplied to Europe. At the same time, the German government saw no reason to blame the Russian Federation for the rise in gas prices in Germany.
