GAS PRICE. Engie’s regulated gas prices will increase by 8.7% on average on September 1. In recent months, gas prices had already risen sharply.

[Updated August 30, 2021 at 07:56 am] The portfolio of the few million households that today depend on regulated gas prices is still under attack. After several months of rising gas prices will rise once again next month, and this time again, the bill promises to be particularly steep. Regulated gas prices will indeed increase by 8.7%, or 7.9% including tax on September 1, announced the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE). In detail, this increase is differentiated according to the nature of consumption:, 2.7% for cooking, 5.5% for dual use (cooking and hot water) and 9% for heating.

“Right now, this does not have too many consequences because people do not use too much gas, except for cooking, but in winter, the bills may be painful”, warns François Carlier, delegate General of the Consumption Housing Framework of Life consumer association (CLCV), with Ouest-France.

This increase is attributed to the same factors as in previous months: the economic recovery has resulted in very strong demand, which pushes the price of gas up to world prices. “This unprecedented increase is observed in all European and Asian countries. It is explained by the global economic recovery observed for several months and by the sharp increase in gas prices on the world market due to an exceptional context” , details CRE. Thus, since January 1, 2019, the regulated prices for the sale of HT gas marketed by Engie have jumped by 15.8%, and by 16.7% since January 1, 2015.

Do you still depend on regulated gas prices? This price increase is not the only reason to look elsewhere! Since the Energy and Climate law adopted in 2019, regulated tariffs are gradually disappearing. Engie has stopped marketing new regulated sales tariff (TRV) contracts since November 2019, which means that you will soon be changing your contract. If you have an Engie contract, don’t panic. It remains valid until June 30, 2023.
