      Are you asking or staying a fact? Are you scaremongering?

        I was asking. Are they and the press/tv news scaremongering?

        I think it's been answered by a couple of posters below.

        Probably not as our gas reserves may be low.

          The bbc will do all the scaremongering for everyone. The best at doing anything to worry or upset the people of this country. They are total shit.

        Liz Truss has said there will be no rationing, and she never u turns. Seriously, the government needs to get its arse into gear communicating the need to save energy

          Id say its highly likely well have shortages this winter. It will only be because of good fortune if we avoid it (mild and windy here, mild in Asia and s weak La Nia)

            Even though we weren`t reliant on Russian gas, the fact a lot of Europe was suggests that there will be an overall shortage - so probably not as scaremongering as you think

              Do you not think the the increase in price will encourage people to economise and use less. Thought I read somewhere only 4% of our gas comes from Russia. Could consumers economise to use less than that 4%?

                Doesn't matter we only use 4% of gas from Russia when our storage capacity is wank

                Do you know anyone that uses more gas than is necessary?

                  Yes, almost everyone could turn down there thermostats by 1 degree and not notice the difference. People who have baths could change to showers, I myself have recently changed to this by chance after a bathroom refit. There are ways of using less gas and electric without it really impacting your comfort.

                    And those who only have a shower, not a bath, or who have already turned the thermostat down several degrees?

                    Most people are neither daft nor spendthrift.

                      There are always ways, stop being so pedantic. You seem to revel in looking for confrontation. We will find ways to use less energy to try to reduce bills, you know that.

                      If you are already saving the max possible, we'll done, many are not but you know that as well.

                          I am not looking for confrontation, just pointing out that it's not always that simple as "turning down the thermostat".

                            The thread is about saving gas so it isn't rationed. If you are already saving gas, well done, many can do more if we need to save supplies and avoid rationing.

                    The 4% figure is about right but we reduced our storage capacity a while back and so we don't have the reserves to fall back on. Whilst it might be an element of scaremongering, it's possible that demand outstrips supply worldwide.
