Germany declares gas crisis as Russia cuts supplies to Europe


Berlin/London (CNN Business) Europe's biggest economy is now officially running short of natural gas and is escalating a crisis plan to preserve supplies as Russia turns off the taps. German economy minister Robert Habeck said he hoped rationing wouldn't be necessary to get through the coming winter, but couldn't rule it out. ''Gas is from now on in short supply in Germany," he told reporters at a press conference in Berlin. "Even if you don't feel it yet: We are in a gas crisis." Europe's energy crisis escalated this month as Russia further reduced supplies to Germany, Italy and other members of the European Union.
