05 November 2008 / by Rebecca Sargent
UK energy prices have risen at double the pace of the European Union average, recent statistics from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have revealed.

According to the OECD, the price of energy in the UK has risen by 29.7 per cent in the 12 months up to September 2008, compared to 15 per cent in the EU overall.

And the real effects of this are beginning to be felt in the UK as, according to uSwitch.com, the average household gas and electricity bill is up by £381 from the £912 it was at the beginning of 2008 to the £1,293 it is today.
