As a result, people have to buy gas cylinders at a price much above the gas pipeline.

the Authors noted that the total program of gasification of the country, launched in 2005, big has not brought results, despite spent by Gazprom on the Russian gas networks 5 billion euros. Now the date was extended to 2030. In addition, the Minister of energy Alexander Novak called the complete gasification of Russia is economically inefficient.
