Homeowners could compare gas and electricity prices as a York councillor has called for wider support for the upcoming Fuel Poverty Bill, reports the York Press.
Nigel Ayre, a Liberal Democrat on the City of York council, has called upon four local MPs to support the bill being put forward by David Heath.
The bill would help fuel poor households onto the cheapest social tariffs available on the market in order to prevent them suffering the effects of further price rises, while it would also do more to boost the energy efficiency of homes across the UK.
Mr Ayre told the paper: "It is vital that the government does all it can to help people get out of fuel poverty."
Over five million households are thought to be fuel poor and energy companies have been criticised for failing to respond to a decline in wholesale prices over the freezing winter months.
Five of the UK's six major energy companies have announced price cuts within the last few weeks.
