Gas: too good to burn? Brisbane
The sharp rise in Australia’s gas prices and the changes in the gas market will impact how we use gas. In the last few years network charges have driven up retail gas prices, and liquefied natural gas exports from Queensland are about to earn big export dollars. While price increases will flow through to Australian customers, both households and businesses, the economic benefits of the change will be overwhelmingly positive and provide an opportunity too good to miss. Panel members shared their views on what this considerable shift means for consumers, reflected on whether we could or should switch away from gas, and if indeed a situation could arise in which our gas is priced out of the market.
