British Gas pushes up prices in time for Christmas
It's November, Christmas is nearly here and the last few days have been colder than usual for the time of year - so it seems the ideal opportunity to British Gas to ramp up their prices. Hooray! Oh.
British Gas customers can expect a 7 per cent rise in their bills from 10th December, an increase that'll mean dual fuel accounts costing an average of £80 more per year.
Low income families will have the increases deferred until the new year, while 1.6 million customers on fixed priced tariffs won't be affected.
