    British Gas owner Centrica says it is raising gas prices by a record 35% and electricity prices by 9%.

    The UK's biggest domestic energy supplier said that the price hikes would take place with immediate effect.

    Soooooo glad I changed to Scottish Power (fixed until Feb 2011) a few months back.

    Looks like I'll be swapping again, only just swapped to BG. Was suprised that they were the cheapest at the time, now I know why!

    Sir Shi? Bag !! aka british gas:-D:-D:-D

    question mark should be a 't'

    Thank god!! I had a BG salesman round only yesterday saying go for their capped price as Scottish power would have increases of 40%. Now i know being on the capped rate would have meant the increase today wouldnt have effected me, but it made me look at the capped rates of scottish power which were cheaper and i changed only yesterday.
    Got my wifes gran and auntie, who were both on BG normal rates to change to scottish power capped yesterday too, close call!

    its a complete con
    GAS IS EXPORTED FROM THIS COUNTRY TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES
    then our companies buy it back from them at an inflated rate.

    easy way to scam the british by foreign owned companys

    All these rises are a ploy to get rid of Brown. Everyone will blame the government when it's all the fat cats greed and lust for power.
