Petition Tag - government petition against rising gas prices
British Gas parent company Centrica posted half-year profits of £992 million, a day after hitting millions of customers with a record hike in gas bills...... The group upped gas bills by a mammoth 35%, with electricity prices up 9%. This takes annual dual fuel payments to £1,317 - £404 above the beginning of the year.
An analyst said: "We expect all the UK retail energy suppliers...to announce retail tariff increases of about 25% before the end of September."
It is high time the government stepped in to protect is citizens from such high increases when we earn no more now than we did 6 months ago!
The people of the UK cannot afford these hikes to continue!.....Our govenment needs to protect the basic rights of its people.
