When can you expect energy prices to fall?

We have seen the latest fall in the rate of inflation, we have seen the fall in the price of oil yet there is no sign that energy prices are going anywhere but up in the UK. The government has been under pressure for some time now after promising to place pressure upon the energy providers and ensure that consumers were presented with falling energy costs.

After Gordon Brown has finished with the banks and then the credit card companies there is speculation that yet again the energy providers in the UK will be the next target. This is a battle which Gordon Brown can not afford to lose after putting himself forward as the "People's Champion" over recent months. Unless he is able to deliver on his promises the UK electorate has a very short memory and will soon forget the rescue package which is being instigated in the UK, together with any potential tax cuts next week.

As David Cameron has found out of late the UK electorate has a very short memory and needs constant reminding of events which have gone by. If the so-called Brown bounce continues into 2009 there is strong speculation that Gordon Brown will look to call a summer election in 2009, one year before his maximum tenure is due to end.
