The Victorian government on Wednesday proposed reforms to the gas market that would place a temporary cap on gas exports from the state to ensure local supplies.

“There is something seriously wrong when you can buy Australian gas in Japan for a cheaper price than what businesses in Victoria are being charged, this needs to change,” said Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio.
