Energy prices likely to rise again.

Now there's a surprise...:-)

Thanks to StayWarm we pay a fixed amount each month for gas and electricity - the price per month actually dropped when the contract was renewed in April, from £91 to £74.

Of course they have to put the prices up to recoup the money from giving all their customers 4 free energy saving light bulbs.Is there anyone out there that still uses British Gas.

I see that they are still advertising for more mugs (customers)on the TV channels!

Cannot see why gas price is linked to the price of oil.

All the energy companies have been offering means of saving on costs - instances include E-On providing low cost energy bulbs in Morrisons, a similar offer was made at Tesco (energy saving bulbs 1p each!) and free loft and/or cavity wall insulation.

We've had the latter done by PowerGen (now E-On), stocked up with bulbs from Morrisons and also got 20 bulbs at 1p from Tesco.

It's all down to Gordon Brown when he was Chancellor; rather than the Government give us back some of our hefty taxes, he threatened potential windfall taxes on energy companies if they didn't offer such freebies or perks.

The way things are going I'll have to cut down on the luxuries like bread & shoes.

The gas company has just suggested I pay £39 per month for Gas. I was paying £12 per month. A figure they set last year. I used to pay £23 per month previous and felt ok about it. Do you think they know what they are doing?

I will not be using much gas in next 6 months but I think the system they use to balance my payments is unaware that Winter and Summer are different seasons of the year

When the Tories denationalized the gas industry people were quick enough to rush out to buy their shares. Still at least we now know where all the profit is going to.
