Gas Bill...


I know the warmer weather is upon us at the moment but memories of last month's chill came back when I got my three monthly gas bill recently. This time last year it was £132. But this most recent one was over £455! Either I've turned into a gas guzzler this past three months, they've made a mistake or gas prices have shot up (which everybody tells me has indeed happened). Wait, it's probably all three. Let's hope me turning the heating down, having it on for less time and British Gas's recent price drop will help with next year's winter bill.

I feel like a pelican. Everywhere I look there's a massive bill in front of me.

  2. I wish. Three bedroom flat. Mind you the bill was 'an estimated reading' - maybe I should take the reading myself and see if they've made a mistake. Althought the mistake may be in my favour!

  4. Thanks. "The majority of complaints over the six-month period - 15,456 - were about billing"

    Well I guess I'm number 15,457.
