Just back from an uplifting all staff event in Manchester, I see that a petition has gone up on the No10 Downing Street website asking the PM to get energy companies to cut prices. The deadline for signing is, appropriately enough, Christmas Day.
One energy company chief has just written to me to say “if we do see sustained and significant falls in the wholesale costs of gas and electricity, we will be passing these savings to our customers just as soon as we can.”
Wholesale prices have fallen by at least 22% since July. If this continues and companies choose not to cut prices, then they ought to explain why as their customers will want to know … or want to petition.
