Compare prices in your region
The price that you pay for your gas and electricity will depend on where your property is located. There are currently 13 different pricing zones throughout England, Wales & Scotland, each with different unit rates and standing charges. This is because of static charges that are imposed onto suppliers by the local distribution networks. As such, to get an accurate reading, make sure you choose your local area from the options listed below.

Eon price increases
Having just heard about the recent price increases from British Gas, it's defintely worth revisiting the not-so-covered price hikes implemented by Eon in March 2017. The company announced earlier this year that they would be rising their average prices by around 8.8%. This would result in about 2.5 million customers paying an extra £97 on average, according to The Guardian. Eon are rather erratic with their pricing: at times they can be the cheapest on the market, and at others, they are by far the most expensive.
This increase results in a 13.8% increase for electricity prices and 3.8% for gas. For those who have just their electricity supplied by Eon, this was a huge hit, seeing their bill rise dramatically.
This, however, has not been the biggest price increase of the year from the Big Six. Npower announced at the beginning of the year that as of 16 March 2017, their prices would be raised by an average of 9.8%, a massive 15% rise for electricity. This could perhaps explain the 1% drop in electricity market share between Q1 and Q2 of this year; however, it seems to be a general trend as more and more people head towards smaller, independent suppliers that are offering cheaper prices and better customer service.
