I pay about a quid a day for electric, and now they want to charge me 5.85 a day?

Surely that's not right? So from 7 pound a week to to 35?

Really? I swear to god, they're going to get abuse on the phone if they think that's acceptable.

Mine went up from around £45 per month to about £85. This was months ago. They are getting blasted for acting too cautious. However, I have heard that gas and electric are all going up double again.

Most things have gone up as a result of the fuel crisis as well.

It's going to get worse towards the winter.

I hope the government steps in with help because keeping a family running is hard enough.

I think there is mounting pressure for them to step in.

Mine doubled.
Disgusting. I thought the cap was 54%, not 100%?

They really are despicable companies

It was in the news not long back that these companies overreacted.
I'm not too bothered because now I am in credit by quite a bit and I can get the excess anytime (might be three months of excess before they release it, I'm not sure).

Overreacted? So the price will come down then?

Not likely, these companies have us by the ⚽🎾 and will want to make lots of profit
