Robert Hammond, energy expert for Consumer Focus, said that there is still room for suppliers to reduce costs by as much as ten per cent on gas bills and 3.5 per cent on electricity.
He told the Daily Telegraph: "The fact that wholesale prices are at a three-year low adds further to the already heavyweight of evidence that greater energy price cuts are needed."
"It is only right that these price cuts are passed on to consumers," he added.
Meanwhile, the Energy Saving Trust has called on consumers to stop using their tumble driers and save themselves an estimated £720 million a year.
