    (ANSA) – VENICE, FEBRUARY 19 – Despite the Draghi Government’s 6 billion measure to mitigate the expensive bills, in the first half of this year, families and businesses will still have to take on an increase of 33.8 billion euros . The estimate is from the Studies Office of the CGIA of Mestre (Venice).

    Compared to 2019, the CGIA calculated an increase in the cost of electricity and gas of 44.8 billion for the first half of 2022, of which 15.4 for households and 29.4 for businesses. If from the total amount we reverse the mitigation measures implemented with the 2022 Budget Law (3.8 billion), those introduced in the decree to combat the energy price increases of last January 21 (1.7 billion) and 5.5 billion billions approved yesterday, net of aid disbursed to Regions and local authorities, the extra cost to be paid remains 33.8 billion: 8.9 on the shoulders of families and 24.9 on those of companies.

    Although the government has disbursed 11 billion lire to “cool down” the energy price increases to households and businesses, the price increases of bills are therefore so important that the balance to be paid remains frighteningly high. According to the CGIA Studies Office, the Government “should be more incisive, as have many other European countries. Spain and France, for example, have imposed caps on increases in bills for a temporary period. Poland, Portugal, Greece , and Estonia, on the other hand, have also provided for discounts or total eliminations of network tariffs, postponing the increases over time – he underlines – or placing them at the expense of the state budget “.

    Finally, for the CGIA “perhaps an announcement would be enough” regarding the ok for the opening of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to bring down the prices of energy products. “A decision – concludes the artisan association – which, in addition to having immediate positive economic effects, would probably also ease the tension and winds of war”.
