Consumers should switch gas deals to one of the fixed rate tariffs currently available from energy suppliers if they want to save money before the next round of price hikes.
Mark Todd, director at energy comparison site energyhelpline.com, commented: "The best tariffs, particularly low-cost fixed rates, are filling up fast and once they are oversubscribed, providers pull them.
"If you're looking to switch, you must act fast as prices are likely to start to rise by late summer," he explained.
However, the best way to save money is to fix, as the remaining four of the Big Six energy suppliers - EDF, npower, Scottish and Southern Energy and E.ON - are yet to announce their own price hikes, and these could come within the next month.
ScottishPower has recently launched the Online Fixed Saver November 2012 tariff, which guarantees customers will pay a fixed price until October 31st 2012.
