Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good point, but I think the data indicates this is not too much of a factor. Rising European gas prices would surely affect production costs of electricity, but although gas-fired turbines are a significant contributor to Germany's electricity production, they're not dominant. The above numbers don't reflect a steep rise in the retail electricity price for German households - the numbers indicate the total costs have grown because of increasing surcharges plus taxation.
