Cold inside the house as it's too expensive to put the heating on

Absolute joke. 🧊🥶

The energy prices are supposed to be coming down, the wholesale price of gas has plummeted in the last 6 months, yet that's not reflected in the unit price we pay.

Wearing a coat inside takes the ****

I bet these company directors and shareholders don't have to do that.

@Steve30000

For many years I couldn't afford to fix my central heating in a big house so I lived in one warm room in the winter (1kw fan heater).
Hardships affect people in many ways and if the prices don't ease soon, it might be back to the one room.

Like me because I just use one room now apart from the kitchen now and again.

Back to the level they were at before they shot up? Doubt it, they're making too much money, they're still interested in fleecing us as much as they can
