The Greedy Bastards are at it again: British Gas 'planning 10% price rise

Families face a new squeeze on their finances this winter after reports that the nation's largest energy supplier British Gas is preparing an inflation-busting 10 per cent rise in bills.

Reports today claim that British Gas, which has 12million customers, will up prices next month in time for the winter when households use the most gas and electricity. British Gas currently charges the average user £1,340 for 'dual-fuel' gas and electricity. A 10 per cent rise would take the bill to £1,474.

British Gas is almost certain to be joined in raising prices by the other 'Big Six' suppliers - Scottish & Southern Energy, Scottish Power, npower, EDF Energy and E.On.

The planned rise in bills is far ahead of general inflation. Earlier this week the official measure showed prices 2.7 per cent higher now than a year ago.
