Gas price hike ex­plained

YOURS (UK) - - Inside -

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.
