Gas & Electricity prices
As the prices of gas & electric are linked directly to the price of oil, how come we are still paying grossly inflated prices when the price of oil has halved?? Since our useless government don't seem interested in asking this question, and have indeed recently abolished EnergyWatch, you might want to contact your supplier and ask them the question directly. They are quick enough to put up prices when the cost of oil rises, so they have no excuse whatsoever for not reducing them now. Don't be fobbed off with excuses that suppliers in Norway and Russia are still charging them the same price, and that it will take time for price cuts to filter through. When oil prices rise, gas & electric prices rise. When oil prices fall, gas & electric prices fall...PERIOD! By my estimation we should all be paying around 40-50% less per kwh. At least petrol suppliers seem to slowly be doing the decent thing, so it's high time the big six greedy energy suppliers followed suit. I think they see Joe public as a bunch of saps who will just sit back & accept it, but I for one am fed up. Anyone else feel the same way? You will do when your winter bills arrive.
