The price comparison website bonkers.ie is encouraging consumers to shop around for the best deals.

Darragh Cassidy is the head of communications at bonkers and he says it's going to add around another €17 a year to the average annual gas bill and around €80 or €90 a year to fill up a 900L tank of home heating oil.
