Glad i am not with them! but in the same breathe other companies will follow suit but for now we are safe, Interesting story i was ready yesterday and if i find the link il post it,

About WHY when the price of a barrel of oil goes down is it that the price of petrol still stays high in the forecourts? and why does the energy companies keep their prices high when there is a window open for them to reduce them?

In fact the price of energy in the uk is becoming daylight robbery but we cant do a lot to stop them?

Scottish power customers are soon to be hit with a Massive 19% increase on gas and 10% on electricity!! Thats a very large increase to take in one go so if you use SP for your gas and electricity you will be getting a 28% increase overall?

I went on to their Dec2012 tarrif 6 months ago just prior to the previous increse as my old tarrif was about to run out. What annoys me is i cannot take advantage of dual fuel tarrifs as I do not have access to gas and have to rely on oil for heating and of course the retail price of oil never comes down in price. At least I am Ok for the next 18 months but will see a big hike when my tarrif period expires.

Its time the Government did something about energy prices. We cannot go on paying ever more and more it has to stop somewhere. Everything is slowly grinding to a halt, food prices, petrol/diesel. Are we prepared to pay pay and pay ever more and more? If so how do we pay for everything?

What gets me about this as I have just got Price list from them on usage it its the Poorest Hardest hit. As first so many units are the dearest after you have payed for them the price drops. Not much good if you are poor and cannot afford a lot of Gas or Electric.

This is not me, but I feel sorry for those already on the Breadline

Grey Goo, "Looks like B.Gas are preparing for a large hike"

I'm with British Gas and have just signed up to their Websaver 12 online tariff as the Websaver 7 online tariff that I'm currently on expires on July 1st and after this date I would go back on to the standard tariff which is more expensive.

I could switch to the British Gas fixed tariff to help insulate me from future energy price rises but this particular tariff seems expensive (over 20% higher than the Websaver 12 tariff that I've signed up to) and surely British Gas would have to hike energy prices quite steeply for me to actually save money on this particular tariff !

The percentage will vary with the ratio of gas to electric, thats why no one can give an estimate of the increase - it will vary between customers.

Oresome, time to move from Scottish Power ?

Having said this is there really any point as the main 6 energy companies are bound to raise their prices to much the same level over the next few months.
