All universal service providers have submitted their requests, as promised, to receive authorization for raising their prices, the Hungarian Energy Office (MEH) said.
The providers will finalize the extent of their respective increases with due consideration to the forint-dollar exchange rate and present the figures to MEH by March 16.
MEH stated that it would proceed in the evaluation of the requests so as not to allow the slightest increase in consumer costs that are not fully justified.
Earlier, the office said it sees a HUF 16 to HUF 17 per cubic meter price hike as realistic. (Napi Gazdaság)
