Now that five of the Big Six energy suppliers have seen their cheapest energy tariffs come to an end, customers in the UK might be looking to switch energy deals.
Some 14 discounted and fixed price tariffs ended last week and April 1st saw the introduction of more costly packages.
Mark Todd, director of Energyhelpline.com, said: "April 1st is a time for hoaxes but these latest price rises are all too real for hundreds of thousands of people.
He added: "The tariffs that are being pulled had protected households against the average 5.9 per cent increase from the latest round of price rises, but I suppose all good things must come to an end."
Mr Todd noted that in order to keep saving money, cheap gas and electricity customers should check price comparison sites rather than accept whichever new tariff their provider 'flips' them on to.
This could make a difference to household finances if UK customers are to see further rises in energy costs later in the year, as was predicted by Energyhelpline.com recently.
