Did you think the controversy over energy costs had gone away? It hasn’t.

The price of gas and electricity is lower than a year ago but don’t cheer your good luck.

Most consumers are saving little more than two per cent and those on the “wrong” tariffs have had nothing.

Yet the cost of gas to the energy firms has crashed by half in the past two years and ­electricity is down by a third.

They could easily afford to slash your bills by a lot more than a paltry few pence.

Instead, they have chosen to swell their already enormous profits and are expected to pocket an incredible £3billion this year on top of the £2.5billion in the previous 12 months.

That is £5,500million in two years, not due to brilliant management but to the vagaries of the international energy markets.

It is equivalent to winning the Lotto jackpot EVERY WEEK.
