A glimpse into the future


This is what Australians can look forward to when Gillard’s ineffective carbon (dioxide!) tax comes into effect, a tax that will not alter global temperatures one iota.

UK energy customers are struggling to meet the cost of steep price hikes with 71% turning to savings, credit cards and overdrafts to pay for their energy bills.

The recent price increases have added a whopping £155.75 per year onto the average household energy bill, with gas prices shooting up by 17.4% and electricity bills up by 10.8%.

These rising costs mean 71% of customers are now finding it difficult to pay their bills, according to Moneysupermarket.

Two-fifths of consumers say they will use their savings, 17% will dip into overdrafts and 12% will use credit cards to meet higher costs.

    29% of people will go further into debt to pay the power bills.
