This table can give you an idea of the cheapest gas prices for the average user, however if you want to find the deal that’s best for your specific circumstances and usage, you should carry out a gas price comparison based on your own consumption.
How do I choose the right gas plan?
The right gas deal depends on the size of your household and your energy consumption.
As a general rule:
- If you live in a household with high consumption and big heating bill, a big discount will probably work best for you - it will significantly reduce your bills over the discount period (usually 12 months).
- If you live in a small household, and your consumption is below average, opting for a plan with a smaller ongoing discount that offers cashback or other bonuses up-front might be more valuable for you.

Is switching to the cheapest gas supplier complicated?

How can I reduce my gas bills?
Aside from switching, the next best way to cut down on your gas bills is to reduce your consumption.
