Top 4 cheapest gas suppliers in the UK:

  1. Gulf Gas & Power UK
  2. EDF Energy
  3. Zog Energy
  4. Entice Energy

When you look at your latest gas bill you might find it hard to believe that there really is such a thing as cheap gas suppliers in the UK. But believe you should.

It’s not like believing in unicorns or fairies, either, since we’ve seen them in the flesh. We can show you photographs and everything, although we’ll probably just show you a link to their website. Competition in the energy market means that you can switch to a cheaper gas deal whenever you like, but it also means that finding the cheapest gas tariff can be hard work.

According to the energy police force Ofgem – that’s not their official title, but it’s how we like to think of them – there were no fewer than 62 companies proving gas and electricity in the UK in December 2018, and all but two of them offered a range of gas tariffs.

So 60 companies and a range of tariffs for each company is *quickly do the maths*… a lot of tariffs. Since we’re experts at tracking down and offering the best gas and electricity deals we’re not about to list every single one of them. That would be really boring, in the way that worrying if you’re paying the right amount for your energy and trying to find cheap gas prices is really boring. We do the boring stuff for you, and that’s why we’re more than happy to present just a few of the lowest gas prices currently available. It should be noted that volatility in the energy market can mean that prices often shift, and once you’ve signed up to a cheap gas tariff an even cheaper tariff may appear elsewhere.

It would probably help if you knew someone who could keep an eye out for those new, cheaper tariffs… (we’re clearing our throats and pointing at ourselves right now).

In the meantime, here are those affordable gas prices. The amount quoted for each is based on the official average medium level consumption, which for gas is 12,500 kWh per year – and don’t worry, we’re not about to start explaining what a kWh is. As prices often vary by postcode, we’ve included three examples from around the country as a reference.
