31 October 2012: Fright in store for UK consumers as cheapest fixed tariffs disappear


Fancy dress trick-or-treaters won’t be the only scary thing facing UK households this Halloween, with the news that the cheapest fixed energy tariffs are fast disappearing meaning many around the country are facing a frightening winter of expensive utility bills. The disappearance of the cheapest fixed deals comes amidst a series of price rises from Big Six suppliers British Gas, EDF, npower, SSE and ScottishPower.

Director of price comparison service, Mark Todd, said, “Energy price rises are back. When energy price rises come they often come in packs. They’re like a huge tidal wave engulfing everybody. But there is a way to avoid the tidal wave, to get on high ground and be one of the lucky few, fix your bill.
“It’s important to fix soon because the best fixed deals will shoot up in cost as the price rises come in. With the UK in a double dip recession, real incomes sliding and energy bills on the rise, it is now more important than ever to take matters into your own hands and take control of how much you pay," Todd continued.

So hurry and compare now and switch to a low cost fixed price deal to beat the price rises.
