I received my latest gas bill via email today and the amount has almost doubled from the previous bill cycle. I understand it’s winter and that more gas is used but there’s no way our consumption was over double. I spoke to somebody over the online chat and over the phone to no avail. Apparently our consumption went from 13390mJ to 31174mJ from the previous cycle, I was told the only option is to go on a payment plan or have the meter inspected which will cost me if it is found not to be faulty. This is ridiculous. Could we have been overcharged with peak times or could there be anything else causing this?

There could be a few causes for a high gas bill, thought it is not uncommon to see these during winter periods. The best place is to check your current meter reading against the end reading on your bill. If you current meter reading is higher than your billed end reading, then this indicates that the meter reading taken was accurate. While you're near the meter, it can also be helpful to note if you smell gas which would indicate a leak. You can find additional information here: My bill seems higher than usual, what should I do?
