Every year the energy consumption of households increases. In this regard, the cost of the consumed energy becomes an essential part of the budget of each household. Because European countries import a significant part of required to them of energy resources, the prices of electricity and natural gas for households in these countries are higher than in other countries. However, the levels of abilities of households to pay the bills for the consumed energy in different countries are different. In this work we have tried to explore the relationships between the average salary and the prices for the most important energy resources for households in different European countries. These studies have shown that some relationships between salary and energy prices have impact on the political situation in some countries. Therefore it's necessary in the energy pricing for households taking into account the levels of the household budgets of their own country.
