The website Azadliq.info publishes an article about 10-fold increase in gas prices during the presidency of Ilham Aliyev.
The author of the material, the head of the National Council Jamil Hasanli writes that power by all means increases the price of gas, and members of Parliament are watching this in silence.
The authorities attribute this to the high cost of gas and the high price of gas in the developed countries. However, such explanations are deprived of socio-economic studies.
At the same time, the Azerbaijani authorities to make "a gesture", supply gas to Georgian churches, including Armenian ones, free of charge. But to the citizens of their own country gas is sold at 100 manat per 1 thousand cubic meters.
This is despite the fact that the international consortium transfers to Azerbaijan free gas from Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli. It is about 4-5 bcm per year.
After 2008, the price of gas increased from 47.2 manat per 1,000 cubic meters more than twice. The reason for the growth of prices is the failing economic policy of the government, which wants to lay all the consequences of this policy on the shoulders of the population.
