Inflation in Britain is breaking new records. Finance Minister: I can’t pretend it will be easy
Inflation in the UK rose to 6.2% in February. – this is the highest level of the last three decades. The acceleration was mainly driven by rising fuel and energy prices. Economists predict that inflation will exceed 9 percent in 2022.

I cannot pretend that it will be easy for the government to face any challenge or that I can completely save people from the troubled times to come – said Rishi Sunak, UK finance minister, quoted by Sky News.
Due to rising gas prices for months, Britain’s energy price limit will be raised to 54 per cent on 1 April. This means that the price level for the normal consumer tariff will increase from £ 1,277 to £ 1,971 per year. According to The Guardian, another increase could take place later this year and the average energy bill for a household could rise to around £ 2,300 per year.
The UK government is preparing protective packages. As Finance Minister Rishi Sunak said, since October this year. the energy bill for all households will be reduced by £ 200. However, the authorities will not add to the bill, they will only defer payment. The £ 200 amount will be repaid by buyers over the next five years.
