One way to hit back over gas price rises
Well done British Gas, you never fail every year to put up your prices.
Well, folks, I have a solution to part of the problem. This is aimed at all the customers out of the estimated eight million who pay monthly by direct debit.
I have heard that an average per month is about £100 – now times this by, say, five million customers, and that's a lot of money coming in each month.
So, bear in mind that they buy the gas in advance on the open market for future sales, I wonder who's money they use? Can you guess?

People keep paying each month in advance for something they have not used yet. Why?
I wonder how many people would go to their local petrol station and offer to pay in advance for fuel they might use at a later date?
I am sure the garages would love it, just like all the energy suppliers.
My advice is cancel your direct payments, and start paying on receipt of the bill after three months, as we used to do for many years.
If people do this, it will starve them of massive funds for which they pay no interest to anyone.
Let's see how they manage using their shareholders' money. Perhaps they will became more competitive with customers?
I have never paid by direct debit and never will, whoever supplies my energy.
