Centrica Shareprices
Centrica, which owns British Gas, has warned that customers may face higher energy bills. Centrica says that "end-user prices" do not reflect the price they are paying for gas on the wholesale market. Additionally the company also stated that it was likely to cut investment in the UK after the Government raised taxes on North Sea oil and gas production. Centrica says that the tax hike would erode profit growth in 2011, sending the company's shares down more than 4%. Hmmm gas prices? falling profits or fresh dividends for shareholders? Your new bill coming to a letter box near you...
