    Too much emphasis on Brexit and crude prices - ths is pretty much all about having no winter gas storage and the uncertainty that brings - lets hope it is not a cold winter otherwise we could see suppliers with major financial difficulties and bad news for thos ewho have a fix ending before the winter or are on a variable tariff.
    I think....

    Just saw yesterday (perhaps available a bit earlier) that Scottish Power Online Fixed Price Energy August 2017 is cheap for me for electricity - possibly the cheapest price I've seen for 24months+

    Seems to suit lowish users as the savings appear to stem from a low standing charge (8.222p per day).
    Unit prices are not the lowest, so won't suit average to high users.

    As always, consult a comparison site to find the best deals for you. (do look at single fuel suppliers too). Prices may vary by region.

    Edit: Just a quick look at gas too. It seems nPower Online Price Fix August 2017 is quite cheap for average to high users. Their unit price is 2.105p/kWh.
    It doesn't work for me as a low user because of the 17.262p/day standing charge (but is still the cheapest for me based on current availability)

    Edit2: actually for me, if I was applying today, the SP deal as a dual fuel would be best overall, as it also has a low standing charge for gas. It would cost me all of £3 per year more (based on non-weighted results) than I'm currently paying (which I thought were cracking deals when I secured them earlier this year)
