The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), which deals with tariff regulation in Russia, spoke about the level of growth in utility tariffs in 2021–2023.
The FAS estimates that the average gas price for consumers in Russia will be 3.11% in 2021, and then will grow by 3.15% over the next two years.
The situation is quite different with the prices for communication services, FAS notes. In 2021, they can grow by 3.7%, and in the next two years they can keep at the maximum inflation rate of 4%.
Earlier, chernayakobra.ru experts named seven ways to save on utility bills. Few people doubt the relevance of such savings, because according to experts, those who will work from home will have to pay at least 10% more on receipts.
chernayakobra.ru also wrote that during the coronavirus pandemic in Russia, scammers are increasingly using one of their favorite tricks - they convince citizens to allegedly pay their debts for housing and communal services at a discount, but in fact they just steal money.
