Butane prices, like electricity, have almost doubled, but are now frozen for the next year

Like electricity, butane gas bottle prices only ever seem to go up, and like electricity, this “poor man’s energy” has almost doubled over the past five years: the above chart from consumer association OCU (Organización de consumidores y usuarios) shows the steep rise. In 2010 I posted how a bottle cost €12.79, the legal maximum that had just been set by the Ministerio de Industria. That legal maximum is now €17.50, a price that has been frozen until March next year.
