Federal government divided over the distribution of the additional costs between tenants and landlords

However, the development on the raw material markets could have a price-dampening effect. Wholesale prices have fallen significantly since the beginning of the year, which is why the average gas prices have also fallen this year. According to Storck, the lower procurement costs give scope not to let price increases turn out quite as high.

The federal government wants to relieve the citizens by starting the CO2 price elsewhere. The commuter allowance for employees with longer journeys is increasing. In addition, the government has prevented a sharp rise in electricity prices with a billion federal subsidy for the EEG surcharge to promote green electricity.

It is still controversial within the federal government how additional heating costs should be divided between tenants and landlords. The SPD-led federal ministries for the environment, justice and finance want landlords to be allowed to add a maximum of half of the additional costs that will arise in future for heating with oil or natural gas to the rent. Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulz (SPD) had said: “After all, it is the landlords who decide on a new heating system. That is why they should also bear their share of the CO2 price. ”
