The Spanish government said proposals presented by the European Commission about energy prices are “incongruous” and fall short of what’s needed.

While the Commission is aware of the impact of the high level of natural gas prices, “its proposals don’t address the exceptional nature of the situation we’re in, with exceptional measures to meet the challenge we have ahead,”  Ecological Transition Minister Teresa Ribera said on Wednesday in an emailed statement.
