You know those kind souls from the “gas company” that knock on your door and charge you a vast amount to change the regulator on your gas bottle? A whole bunch of them got arrested nationally yesterday. Not for ripping off over 2,500 main pensioners, or demanding money with menaces, but for defrauding the revenue.
The government has approved yet another price increase for butane bottles, the orange gas bottles we all use – the new price will be 16.43€ as from the middle of July. That’s an increase of 5,8%, and a total 8,8% increase since January. 10 million Spaniards are dependent on butane bottles according to the industry.
