Robbed by the gasman

Whilst people are struggling to pay their bills during the coldest winter I’ve ever experienced, British Gas was making a record £595 million profit. That’s a 58% increase on last year!

Despite gas consumption dropping by 7% and dropping their prices they have still managed to secure a bumper profit. This is due to a huge drop in wholesale gas prices which dropped by 45%. Obviously this is not passing on the savings to the customer.

Surprise, surprise, we all get fucked again. But we all have no choice but to continue filling shareholder pockets at our expense. Just goes to show the kind of grip the energy companies have on us.
