Scottish Power are the latest energy firm to confirm that their prices will be going up.

As of December 6th dual fuel energy prices will increase by 8.6%, with gas prices going up by 8.5% and electricity prices by 9%.

The move comes amid political wrangling over the issue of energy bills, with the government planning to review the green levies that form part of a bill.

Scottish Power is the fourth of the six major energy suppliers to announce price rises.

SSE announced an 8.2% increase in domestic bills from 15 November, British Gas said prices for its customers would go up by 9.2% on 23 November, and Npower announced the biggest rise of 10.4% which will take effect from 1 December.
