Gas bills

Anyone else receiving horrendous gas bills ? We've just had one from Brit Gas for £75 for the summer months and they've predicted our next year's bill as over £750 - ie £75 quid A MONTH ! I know gas prices have gone up, but this seems really expensive.
Can anyone recommend another supplier or give us a comparison so we know if we are being overcharged ? We live in a smallish 3-bed bungalow.

EON. Dual fuel internet monthly direct debit £37 for gas, and £37 for electricity.
But there may be better deals now, go through moneysaving supermarket.com or go compare etc.
Good luck.

£75 sounds cheap!! NPower tried to increase our direct debits to £350 a month, dual fuel.

£75 for three months gas? Mine was £138.

If that's £75 a quarter, then that's cheap by anyone's standard. I used to be with BG and had gas and electricty with them, I paid £61 a month for both. I've now switched (via Uswitch website) to Scottish Power, and I pay £48 a month for both, and I received £50 from Uswitch for switching !!! Pays to shop around....

The beauty of a competitive fuel industry - you send half your life running round from firm to firm trying to find one that's a couple of quid cheaper. Then they put their prices up and it all starts again.

I have no gas in use, but I do have a meter. I get sent a bill for £0.00, and they would now like me to pay that by Direct Debit.

Sorry folks, that's 75 a month, so 225 a quarter for gas and electricity I think. Sounds like there are better deals out there, so shop around Jude. Think I will... Loving the Direct Debit for 0.00!
PS. Maybe send them a fresh meter reading.

Thanks for your input. I've found the energyhelpline.com which has already found npower will save us £221 per year and E-on £218 !

Beware Npower's customer service - not great.
