Natural gas prices are somewhat, but not completely independent of oil prices as there is a difference in their uses. The global demand for energy has driven up the demand for all forms of energy - electricity, gas, coal, even peat.

The CER announcement relates to how gas prices are set - the gas retailers (Bord Gáis, Electric Ireland, Calor, etc.) submit their pricings based on what they expect to pay for gas over the next year, adding for waste, transmission, distribution, other costs, capital expenditure, profit, etc. and a figure is agreed. If I'm correct, price setting by CER is generally on the way out.

The quickest fall in price im almost sure I've seen so far is Tesco in Finglas, 1.66 - 1.59 in the space of a few days. Still wouldn't go near them though.

Barrel price fell rapidly in june down in low eightys now climbing since start of july back up to late 90's.

We didnt see anywhere near the savings in june that should have been the suppliers sucked in the fall for clear profit.

We were supposed to see a drop of 10-12 cent per litre. We got about 2-3 cent and yesterday fuel went back up 4 cent.

Joke

It is the single most serious issue facing the domestic economy right now and it has choked consumer spending.

Cutting fuel tax will stimulate the economy and help to create jobs by diverting tax money into other areas of the economy. When you have to spend €120 to fill the car each week you sure is hell aint going to go for dinner or a weekend away. LPG gas needs to be vastly encouraged and when people see Unleaded €1.70, Diesel €1.66 and LPG €0.75 up there on the fuel pricing there will be stampede for conversions. I'm going to convert my own car to LPG soon and I actually now hope that Petrol skyrockets to €2/l so that LPG becomes more popular as sourcing it in rural areas is troublesome.
