Nuon and Essent raise prices

THE NETHERLANDS - Clients of Nuon and Essent can expect to pay roughly EUR 10 a month more for their gas and electricity from 1 July.
The firms, two of the largest energy suppliers in The Netherlands, say that the high price of oil has forced them to raise their own charges for gas and electricity.
The price of crude oil climbed above USD 130 a barrel for the first time on Thursday. Experts believe that in the coming months, it may well rise to between USD 150 and USD 200 a barrel.
