Ha, they're being charged more because they've been using less. See, it's true that the utilities don't want you getting too efficient.

Retail gas prices are based mainly on historic quarterly shareholder dividends. Supply and demand have very little to do with it.

On the lesser known Isle of Woman, they get their power from the Sun and their heat from unicorn farts. Unicorn farts are in short supply, however, because the only way to catch one is to stake out a virgin. So the womyn of the Isle of Woman raid the Isle of Man and kidnap virgins. The Internet on the Isle of Man is the slowest in Old Europe, even slower than in Aberwinchy. But everything is coming up Rosie on the Isle of Woman, because Man smart, Woman smarter.

There is an Isle of Woman. I know that because Saint Brendan the Navigator visited it. The women are incredibly beautiful and live for centuries and they have invisible flying machines and golden lariats. But if you take one home to Ireland, she ages five centuries in five minutes when her foot touches the sand or shingle of an Irish beach.

That's what they call it, you know. Shingle. Not to be confused with the hives, which they call Oast Houses.

About £13.50 ($22.5). I think they used to be much more expensive a couple of decades ago, as they used to get it shipped in, but they tapped into a line that runs across the Irish Sea - with much hilarity of old people despite all the warnings they couldn't continue to use their old gas appliances after the switchover (due to much higher grid pressure) having three foot high jets of flames come out of their cooker when they try to boil an egg or whatever.

I was fortunate enough to witness the Isle of Man TT in person last year. Best. Trip. Evar. Caught this photo on the down slope of Bray Hill:
