The truth about gas prices .....

FACT – most people’s fuel bills are going to be significantly higher this winter

The adverse cold snap and yet another price hike from the energy suppliers at the end of 2010, February 2011 AND now July 2011 means that more expensive home fuel bills are inevitable.


FICTION – the ‘6 Big’ energy suppliers are paying much more to buy in gas

The graph to the right (Source : )shows that wholesale gas prices dramatically reduced during the second half of 2008 and 2009, but prices charged by suppliers remains consistently much higher.  Since then the energy suppliers have forced two increases in 2010 and two more so far in 2011; the latest being an 18% increase!

Many people are struggling to keep their fuel bills at a manageable level, and the energy suppliers profits keep going up and up.  The “Fat Cat” Energy providers have grabbed their biggest percentage increase in profits during 2010 and 2011 – a soaring 98% increase!  And this at a time when the whole country is enduring more cut backs, and our winter temperatures reached an all time low.
