ScottishPower to cut prices
As for ScottishPower, this reduction will come into play from March 15th, so you'll have to wait a while if you're a customer on the standard variable tariff. So you'll still be paying more while it is cold, regrettably.
These price drops don't affect electricity prices either.
Now, seeing as this price drop has been a long time coming (too long, you might say, given that the price of wholesale gas has been dropping steadily for the past 12 months), it does leave ScottishPower customers still paying hundreds of pounds over the odds, compared to those who have already shopped around and switched to a fixed-price deal.
