Power company Powergen is putting up its gas prices by 24.4% and electricity prices by 18.4%.
The price increases, from 10 March, will affect about six million customers in the UK.

Amazing how Gordon keeps CPI to 2.4%, truly miraculous in fact. :lol:

NOW:

The energy company Powergen has announced its second round of domestic price increases this year.
Its gas prices will go up by 18.4% and its electricity prices by 9.7% from
21 August.

Powergen bumped up domestic gas by 47.3% this year, and electricity by 29.9%. Thats typical of all suppliers.

And its August.

Annualised thats ~70% on gas & ~45% on electricity. Who will this hurt most? Who will benefit?

Talk of an energy crisis is old news.

With all the recent hikes in gas price being substantially greater than the hike in electricity prices electricity must be close to being a cheaper method of heating your home now :unsure:

One train of thought is to let global warming heat your home, what could be cheaper?

I've got about £30K worth of E.On shares.

I've mentioned them as an excellent buy several times on here. Anyone else got any?

I started buying when I saw Waffen Buffet buying Scottish Power offshoot.

I think having the Labour party and the energy companies pis*ing all you should warm you up.
