Bord Gais applied to the Energy Regulator in August for a 7.54% increase to gas prices. See Here
Today the CER has approved an increase of 8.5% from October this year. They said that since the summer the price of gas in euro terms has continued to rise and the value of the euro, which has decreased against sterling over the last year, is a key driver on gas prices as Ireland purchases virtually all of its gas prices from Britain.
We expect Airtricity , Electric Ireland and Flogas to also bring in similar increases to their gas prices too.
