Energy bills could fall below £2,000 – but remember they’ll still be ‘considerably more’ than before

Last Updated: March 22, 2023By Tags: , , ,

By now we’re all aware that energy bills are likely to fall below £2,000 by July – right?

But households are still likely to struggle with payments because that’s still one-third more than what we were paying before the war between Russia and Ukraine.

The Mirror is reporting information from investment bank Investec, stating that

a typical energy bill will drop to £1,981 in July, then £1,966 in October – this is down from £2,500 paid now under the Energy Price Guarantee.

But the article continued:

Investec analyst Martin Young said anything that lowers bills was welcome but added “it does not disguise that these estimates are still considerably higher than historic levels.”

For context, the Ofgem price cap in August 2021 was £1,277 a year.

These are expensive times.

In most cases, the extra expense has been caused by Tory government policies that either stupiIsdly gave away cheaper ways of obtaining products or imposed more bureaucracy on the ways that exist.

That doesn’t help ordinary people who are hostages to the energy firms and have to find the cash to pay their bills or be cut off.

But here’s a question: if energy bills can come down, then why can’t the price of groceries?

What is it that keeps the price of some goods higher than others? Is it greed?

    I think you make a good point – fuel prices might go down – but not to where they were not so long ago. Another example is the price of petrol and diesel, falling but not back to the £1.30/ litre it was a year or so ago. So we are still paying a lot more than we were.

    Inflation is another misunderstood issue in the same vein. Even if inflation “drops” – say to 5% – that means that prices are still rising, just not so fast. Yet such a fall in the rate of inflation will be widely trumpeted in the media as “good news”, when clearly it isn’t.
