Hungary: 0%!

Inflation is everywhere now, but we are not in danger of raising the overhead! *

Hungary: 0%!

* As long as Fidesz-KDNP is in government
Overhead reduction on the left would look like this:

Balázs Orbánwrote: While electricity prices in the EU have risen by an average of 31 percent and gas prices by 51 percent in the past year, Hungarians are paying the same as before.Overhead cuts have stood the test of time and the energy crisis.

The government between 2002 and 2010 allowed the price of electricity to double and the price of natural gas to triple, but the current government has created a predictable and low energy price environment for the population.

Due to this, the price of overheads in Hungary has decreased by an average of 25 percent, and even today, almost ten years later, Hungarians pay the same for electricity and gas as before. The government’s overhead reduction policy has therefore stood the test of time and the energy crisis.

The success of the overhead reduction is also confirmed by data from the Household Energy Price Index, which tracks residential electricity and gas prices paid in European capitals.

According to statistics, the energy crisis has hit most EU member states hard, with EU citizens now forced to pay an average of 31 per cent more for electricity and 52 per cent more for gas than a year earlier in their home capital.

Electricity prices rose the most in the Dutch and Romanian capitals, where they more than doubled in 1 year. The change in retail gas prices is similar, but the rate of growth is even more drastic. In Romania, the price increase is three times higher, while in Greece, Belgium, Denmark and Luxembourg it is more than double.

Meanwhile, due to the overhead reduction in Hungary, the prices of electricity and gas remained unchanged. Moreover, in terms of EU Member States, Hungarian citizens pay the least for energy consumption: less than half of the EU average for electricity and less than a third of the EU average for gas. Meanwhile, a Danish citizen has four times the electricity bill and a Swedish gas bill more than seven times his Hungarian bill.

The government's measures to reduce overheads have been widely criticized since they were introduced, and the Hungarian left is still attacking the institution of official pricing.

However, the energy security of the population maintained during the crisis proves the effectiveness of its overhead reduction policy.
