Firmus to raise gas prices by 12%

Since Firmus energy is to raise gas prices by 12% we can no doubt hear howlings of outrage from our MLA’s and the regulator! What’s that I hear? Silence?

Whither it is gas, oil or electricity the response or lack of it is always the same. Nowt!

What puzzles me is the similarity with the electricity prices rises, it’s almost as if the rise is mirrored whether justified or not. If one provider increases prices and get away with it the others adopt a me too policy.

I also find somewhat curious is the comment in their letter about wholesale gas prices and the mysterious distribution costs. What are they, and are they justified.

Firmus energy will get away with this scandalous increase because no-one in authority cares.
