Affordable energy prices

Australians need to have access to reliable sources of gas and electricity at prices they can afford. We should not be paying more for Australian gas than overseas customers.

That is why the Turnbull Government will secure domestic gas supply with the introduction of export restrictions so domestic supply is met before exports are permitted.

This builds on existing measures to deal with the gas crisis including the ACCC’s forensic monitoring of the entire gas supply chain and the gas supply guarantee we secured from gas companies so we do not have a shortage of gas on very hot or very cold days.

Thousands of jobs depend on secure, reliable and affordable gas.

The Turnbull Government is committed to putting Australian demand for gas first which means more reliable and affordable gas for Australian households and businesses.
