The increases are a whopping 8.8% for its customers living in the Greater Belfast area with customers in 'ten towns' seeing their bills rise by 6.8%. New prices come into effect from 5th April for Antrim, Armagh, Ballymena, Ballymoney, Banbridge, Belfast Craigavon, Derry, Limavady and Newry and 16th April for Greater Belfast. Wholesale prices in Europe have recently risen due to particularly bad weather (more expected this weekend) and we could yet see further upward pressure on these prices depending upon how much we manage to upset Mr Putin in the next week or two. This is highly likely to be the first of many increases across all gas suppliers.
