Gas and electricity Updated:
The average British Gas dual fuel bill is expected to increase by approximately £80 a year as a result of the latest energy prise rise to be announced this week.
Hot on the heels of SSE and Centrica's announcements that their prices will be rising, British Gas stated that its rates will soar by 6%, with EDF Energy expected to drive up its rates in the near future.
The endless energy price rises will create yet further misery for UK households facing a 'winter of discontent', particularly as news reports claim the UK faces the 'worst winter for years'.
Matt Ridout at Energyhelpline.com, said: "Surveys suggest as many as 45% of UK households have never switched supplier, meaning many may be paying high standard rates.
"Likewise, many who have regularly switched can still see the benefit of doing so again by securing a fixed tariff that will protect them from further price rises. "Switching is quick and simple and could save you hundreds of pounds a year from your household bills, can you afford to pay unnecessarily high bills?"
