The retail price of natural gas is the cheapest in Hungary among the 28 European Union member countries and the retail price of electricity is second lowest, news website Origo said on Tuesday citing latest Eurostat figures.

The Orbán government’s public utility cost cutting scheme announced in late 2012 has played a major role in the development of Hungarian prices, Origo said.
