EDF Energy have become the latest energy firm to increase their prices, having announced that the average gas and electricity price will rise by 3.9%.

The company, one of the UK's big six energy suppliers, is the latest provider to raise bills, but it says its rise is "half" that of its rivals.

The company says its new average standard variable price will now be £1,300, a rise of £49 a year.

Last month the major energy companies began to increase prices,

SSE said it would increase prices by 8.2% from 15 November, British Gas's prices are due to rise by 9.2% on 23 November, Npower said its dual-fuel bills will go up by 10.4% on 1 December and Scottish Power's price rise will be 8.6% for dual-fuel energy bills from 6 December.
