Sean Gardner, director of MoneyExpert.com, said: "Another domino falls as British Gas follows the lead of EDF. Time is running out for switching to beat the price hikes so we’d urge everyone to act now."
"These price hikes aren’t unexpected. But they’re still enormous and will still hit consumers hard. Our research shows that around 3 million people switch their gas bills every six months – that figure could go through the roof as consumers try to get the cheapest tariffs before the cold weather returns."
