Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Poland’s gas consumption rose to a record yesterday as freezing weather boosted demand, Malgorzata Polkowska, a spokeswoman at Gaz-System SA, Poland’s state-owned natural gas pipeline operator said in a text message.
The country used 72.3 million cubic meters of the fuel on Feb. 3, up 2.8 percent from a day earlier, Polkowska said. The previous record was 68.1 million cubic meters a day set in January 2010, according to the economy ministry,
