The German authorities failed the gas austerity plan due to record frosts in the country. Die Welt* writes about it. As the newspaper notes, against the backdrop of cold weather, the Germans began to heat their homes more often. Germans have consumed 14 percent more gas this week than last week, according to the Federal Grid Agency. “We also lost a whole percentage point in gas storage facilities on Monday, this should be an exception,” the newspaper quoted the head of department Klaus Müller as saying.
