Energy billsQ: I’m hearing a lot about energy bills increasing. Should I be fixing my energy prices?

A: In a word, yes! Over the next few weeks a lot of the great value fixed energy tariffs are coming to an end and gas and electricity prices are set to increase again, so fix your costs now to avoid possibly paying over £200 a year more for energy costs.

The best deals still around (but not for long) are the Scottish Power’s Online Fix and the First Utility Fix.

Visit a good comparison site such as to see if you’d be better off fixing now.
