    Cost of LPG from Flogas

    Cost of LPG from Flogas 14th Feb 18 at 12:24 PM
    I have a 1200 litre LPG tank owned by Flogas and have been their customer for about 10 years. I agreed to a new 2 year supply on 16/8/16 at a price of 41.5 ppl + VAT fixed for 1 year. Then, the year being completed, they increased the price to 48.8 ppl (reasonable!) on 9/9/17. However since then I have had increases to 61.7 ppl on 6/12/17 and 69.65 ppl on 5/2/18. This seems completely unfair and unreasonable, an increase of 43% since Sep 2017. I tried to switch but Flogas wouldn't let me as I was still in the 2 year period. They seem to have the power to increase the price to anything they want. Anyone know of anything I can do?

    Unfortunately the cost pf LPG is linked to the wholesale Oil market, and that has gone up from around $50 a barrel to over $60 in the past few months.

    Needless to say, Flogas and other suppliers in the LPG market aren't shy about loading on a bit of extras margin when they can

    I'm with Flogas and I'm paying 34ppl. I only recently moved in and I received a letter from Flogas just sent to the address mentioning that they were increasing their prices to 74ppl + VAT! So I called to check and got myself the deal above for the first year.

    There is a clause in your Flogas contract that states that you can terminate your agreement with them if they increase the cost by more than the Platts LPG Price Index. So it may be worth checking that, terminating and then moving to Calor who are about 40% cheaper.
    Good luck.
