The joys of privatised energy companies: Scottish Power to hike gas bills by 19%
The Guardian reports:
Household budgets face further pressure after a leading energy company said it was raising gas bills by 19%
Scottish Power, which will also raise electricity tariffs by 10%, said it would add 48p to the average daily combined gas and electricity bills of its 2.4 million customers, an extra cost of £175 a year.
Other energy companies are of course, expected to follow suit.
