馬恩島的天然氣用戶被飆升的賬單 "嚇壞 "了

一些人將家庭每年平均增加677英鎊描述為一種 "恥辱"。

這是繼4月份上漲58%之後,該公司說這是由於俄羅斯入侵烏克蘭造成的天然氣批發供應中斷。

政府已承諾提前制定計劃,以支持那些在10月份受漲價影響 "最大 "的人。

四個孩子的母親黛西-奎因(Daisy Quine)說她非常擔心,並補充說。"嚇壞了是我要用的詞。"

"這是一個相當大的數額,我在哪裡找到它?我的工資不會增加。"

當被問及可能的財政支持時,奎因女士回答說。"我正處於兩者之間的階段,我無法負擔不斷上漲的費用,但我沒有資格獲得幫助,所以這讓我感到很棘手。"

他說。"對於那些能夠負擔得起的人,這一切都很好。對於那些負擔不起的人來說,這將是一個暗淡無光的冬天。"

住在有三層玻璃的公寓裡的芭芭拉-特羅特說,"住在大房子裡的人和家庭才會受到真正的影響"。

"她的丈夫大衛說:"如果他們必須這樣做,他們就必須這樣做。

當被問及他們是否能負擔得起漲價時,他補充說:"我們可能可以,我們的使用量不大,主要是為了熱水。"

"這太荒謬了。她說:"對我來說,這沒什麼,我也許能負擔得起。

"但是,當你想到老人時,他們要麼取暖,要麼吃飯,這是不公平的。"


Some people have described the increase of £677 on average each year for households as a "disgrace".

It follows a 58% rise in April, which the company said was due to disruption in the wholesale supply of gas caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The government has pledged to bring forward plans to support those "most affected" by the hike in October.

Mum of four Daisy Quine said she was very worried, adding: "Terrified is the word I'd use."

"It's a significant amount, where am I going find that? My pay is not going up."

When asked about possible financial support Ms Quine replied: "I'm in the in between stage, where I can't afford the rising costs, but I'm not eligible for help, so that makes it quite tricky."

He said: "For those who can afford it, it's all very well. For those who can't, it's going to be a bleak, bleak winter for them."

Barbara Trotter, who lives in an apartment with triple glazing, said it was "people who live in big houses it's really going to affect, with families".

"If they've got to do it, they've got to do it," her husband David said.

When asked if they could afford rise, he added: "We probably can, our use is not massive, it's mainly for hot water."

"It's ridiculous. It's okay for me, I can maybe afford it," she said.

"But when you think of old people, its either heat or eat and it is just not fair."
