British Gas to raise prices by 9.2%
Another reason to buy a Wood Burning or Multi-fuel Stove from the Falkirk Stove Company!
British Gas is to increase prices for domestic customers, with a dual-fuel bill going up by 9.2% from 23 November.
The increase, which will affect nearly eight million households in the UK, includes an 8.4% rise in gas prices and a 10.4% increase in electricity prices.
The company said it “understands the frustration” of prices rising faster than incomes. The average annual household bill will go up by £123.
Rival SSE has already announced an 8.2% increase in bills from 15 November.
A government minister described the latest price rise as “extremely disappointing news” for customers.
