Get Your Head Around Gas Prices

The cost of your gas depends on a few key factors. Like where you live, how much you use and the type of tariff (the way your supplier charges you for what you use). Gas usage is measured in kWh (kilowatt hours). Your bill’s calculated according to the rate per kWh plus a standing charge (applied per day regardless of what you use).

Types of Gas Tariffs

When looking at gas suppliers, there are a few kinds of gas tariffs available to consider. Each has their own merits, but it's important to know which suits you best.

When you’ve got a fixed-rate tariff, the gas cost-per-unit stays the same throughout your contract. It protects you against price rises but means you won’t benefit from price drops. 


With Standard Variable Rate tariffs (STVs), the cost-per-unit goes up and down according to the wholesale market price of gas. It’s what you’re moved to when a fixed rate ends and these days it’s very expensive. 


With a prepaid meter, you pay for your gas in advance with a token, card or app. Cost-per-unit can be dearer than with a standard meter, but it can make it easier to budget.

Why Have Gas Prices Been So High?

Like all commodities, gas providers base their prices on supply and demand. But several factors have recently combined to make prices particularly high – like a surge in demand caused by economies reopening after COVID-19 and a cold winter, increased demand for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) in Asia, conflicts around the world and a backlog in significant maintenance projects. 

Despite this, gas prices have stabilised, and there are some great tariffs available offered by suppliers.

We can’t control outside events or force providers to reduce their prices. And Government price caps limit the effects of the crisis without solving it. So the best thing you can do to take control is being proactive about switching suppliers – exactly what we do for you.
