Giving a higher gas/electric meter reading than actual reading

    If you were in a position where you submit your gas or electric meter readings to your provider what would be the legal position of you submitting a reading higher than the actual reading and paying for same? This could hardly be seen as theft as you are paying for something before you actually used it.

    The advantage of giving the reading higher would be to avail of the price per unit now rather than higher price in the future.
