More Misery for Gas Customers as Prices Soar by 44%

Thu, 04 Aug 2022

The price of gas will increase by 43.9% from September in yet another increase by Manx Gas.
The UK Government have created a scheme to help people with their energy bills yet the Manx Government can't put any further proposals in place before October Tynwald.
But the Treasury Minister, Dr Alex Allinson has said that Government has already provided support packages totaling more than £6.3 million during the first six months of 2022.
Prices were increased in February by 27.5% and increased again in April when they went up 58% - a move that angered many and caused hardship for others.
The Manx Government said: "Treasury is currently working on a range of options for more targeted support to help those most affected by the rise in energy costs and these will be announced at the October sitting of Tynwald.”
