UPDATE: We updated these figures in October 2022 to reflect Liz Truss’s energy price guarantee and other changes to the cost of living

How much will utility bills cost this year? Many are asking the same question as living costs have risen to record heights for millions of households across the UK.

Ofgem’s energy price cap, the maximum amount an electricity or gas supplier can charge an average customer per year, jumped from £1,277 to £1,971 at the beginning of the year. More recently, the new energy price guarantee set the average annual energy bill for a household at £2,500 a year.

Most UK broadband providers have opted to increase their prices in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate of inflation, which recently hit a three-decade-high of 5.4 per cent.
