Gas price rises are totally exorbitant

Have your say

With reference to the article “Profits at British Gas soar!” (February 25) I note, as until recently a customer of theirs, that the hike in the company’s bills (in my case substantially exceeding the reported 7 per cent) has taken place despite its recent profits of £742 million in 2010.

I write to report that on my transferring to a less exorbitant provider British Gas (despite my having been a loyal customer for over 20 years) added insult to injury by demanding a cancellation fee of £35.00!
