Gas price hike explained
Millions of British Gas customers will see their energy bills increase again after the firm announced it’s pushing up prices again by almost four per cent. On October 1, the price for a typical dual fuel customer on the standard variable tariff will go up by £44 per year – taking the average annual bill to £1205. This marks the second time British Gas has raised prices since the beginning of the year, after increasing its typical fuel bill by 5.5 per cent in April - a move that affected more than four million UK households. Customers of Sainsbury’s Energy, (a white label of British Gas) will also be hit by the same price rise in October.
