Cold Shoulder: The rise in gas and oil prices has left an estimated 34 million Europeans in a state of fuel poverty, with Member States such as Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Cyprus being the most heavily affected. Exacerbating this problem is the reliance of many Eastern European States on imported, mainly Russian, oil and gas, with countries such as Latvia sourcing 93% of their gas supply from Russia. What can the EU do to reduce not only fuel poverty within its Member States but also reduce their reliance on imported energy?
