Gas and electricity Updated:
Scottish Power has become the third supplier in four days to announce energy price hikes.
Scottish Power customers will see their bills for both gas and electricity increase by an average 7% from December 3.
British Gas was the first provider to announce average price increases of 6%, with npower following closely behind, announcing average increases of 8.9%.
"This Scottish Power price increase is another hammer blow to UK consumers," said Mark Todd, director of the independent price comparison service Energyhelpline.com, in response to the announcement.
"Anyone impacted by this price rise should consider switching to a fixed rate tariff now to beat the hikes. A typical Scottish Power customer can save at least £184 a year and fix their bills for the next two winters. Customers who pay by quarterly cash and cheque can save even more."
