Customers “won’t be fooled” by the recent flurry of energy price cuts, say campaigners.

Earlier today British Gas and SSE announced cuts for electricity and gas bills (respectively) while yesterday EDF dropped its gas prices.

Paul Steedman at campaign group Friends of the Earth said:”Customers won’t be fooled by energy companies following EDF with last-minute winter price reductions – they know that even with today’s cuts their prices have soared within the last year.

He added: “Tinkering in the margins of massive price hikes won’t fix our broken energy system.”

The campaign group is calling on Prime Minister David Cameron to launch a public inquiry into the power and influence of the Big Six energy companies.
