Interesting Fact # 926 - Energy Prices

According to recent figures, gas and electricity prices in Britain have climbed twice as fast as the European Union average.

(According to the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) there's been a 29.7 percent rise in utility prices in the past year in the UK, compared to a 15 percent increase in the EU. We don't call it "rip of Britain" for nothing.)
