So our very brave Prime Minister David Cameron is calling for very strong sanctions over the recent commercial plane that crashed in Ukraine against Russia.
Who controls natural gas that UK and Europe has to use.
If you rely totally on gas ( I don't, it was a concious decision ) you have a problem this coming winter if the above is not sorted out amicably with Russia
Increase energy prices will affect jobs, the economy, keeping your house warm in the winter.
And the markets won't use this as an excuse to put up gas prices will they !
Rosedale comment on the above link
"The central premise of this badly researched article that "the price of LNG in Asia has crashed from $20 to $11 per British thermal unit since February" is essentially false (apart from the obvious typo - per BTU should read per million BTUs).
Russia is a reliable and presently irreplaceable supplier of large quantities of relatively low-cost pipeline gas (and continued to be one even through the height of the cold war). A boycott would be pointless and futile anyway - Europe would be freezing and half its factories shut long before Russia ran out of money or anything else.
The Russian people, as history shows, have an immense capacity to suffer hardship and privation when their homeland is threatened, and I doubt that things have changed so much over the years or the centuries that the Russian government will alter its present policies under the threat of sanctions as long as it sees its vital national interests being at stake."
