EU Mulling Rationing Gas Across Bloc as Public Told to Expect Prices to Triple

According to a report by Die Welt, draft EU measures aimed at curbing gas use will include limiting the heating of public and commercial buildings to 19 degrees Celsius, or around 66 degrees Fahrenheit, during the winter months. – READ MORE
