The price of gas in Europe again approached 1,900 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters, according to data from the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) in London, quoted by TASS.

April futures at the TTF gas distribution center in the Netherlands reached 1,890 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters or 165,995 euros per MWh.

Since the beginning of trade, gas has risen by 3 percent. 

Yesterday, the price of gas in Europe exceeded the historical maximum of the previous day and rose to 2279 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters or 198.56 euros per MWh.

Later in the evening, it fell below $ 1,700 after Gazprom booked gas supplies through Poland to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline.

Gas prices are rising amid sanctions by the United States and other Western countries against Russian individuals and legal entities over Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.
