    Energy Prices for Gas and Electricity. 15th May 18 at 10:38 PM
    Just had a bit of a shock.
    I'm on a fix with Sainsburys (BG badged product - dual fuel) and last year and the previous year I paid about the 1150 mark.
    I come to renew and they are asking 1550 and BG are asking something similar.
    I go to the rest of the big six and using the standing charges and fuel tariffs provide they still kick in about 1260 mark with the best being the co-op (noted by this site) at 1215.
    Have I been lucky for the previous years with exceptionally good fixed price deals, or has something happened in the energy market which has put the fixed prices up by well in excess of 10%

    I can do the maths so don't have a go at me on that score.

    1150 to 1550 is way more than 10% - I make it 34.7%. Generally prices have not risen by anything like that much.

    Is the 1550 'quote' for the same consumption?
