More Gas Price Rises On the Way
The papers report this morning that the hike in oil prices may result in a 40 per cent rise in gas prices on top of those that have already happened. We don't have gas at home but a friend of mine in Norwich told me that their gas supplier has just told them that their monthly direct debit needs to rise from £38 to £71 to continue to receive the same level of supply. If that kind of rise is being seen all over the country, next winter could be a very bleak one indeed for some people.
