Gas bills to rise 4 euros a year

Gas bills will go up by an average of €4 a year from 2010 as a result of major investments to the country’s gas transport infrastructure. The investments – which could be as high as €1.8bn – are needed because the Netherlands’ own natural gas reserves are shrinking making it necessary to increase imports.
