因此当 Andrews 政府发出禁令，禁止 2020 年前一切维州天然气勘测时，这雪上加霜的消息无疑令人倍感担忧。
Victoria needs gas exploration
Gas prices are rising rapidly, and there may not be enough gas supplies available in Victoria in future.
It is therefore very concerning that the Andrews government has placed a ban until 2020 on all on-shore gas exploration in Victoria.
This means higher gas bills for both families and businesses, and some businesses may be forced to close, costing jobs.
The Liberal Nationals Coalition believes future on-shore conventional gas exploration should continue to be allowed, with safeguards.
