I think your probably correct and we'll just have to bat it out. Our monthly D.D from Avro was £70 and now I would antipicate we will be paying in the region of £140 a month. Those of us on the cheaper tarrifs from the small companies will feel the hit harder as Avro were plying their trade at 14p electric and 2.34 the gas.Theoretically yes you should be able to switch again - although it is highly unlikely there will be any cheaper tariffs around.
I doubt any suppliers are pricing their standard variable tariffs at a discount to the price cap in these market conditions, and any fixed deal is likely to be more expensive (wholesale markets have moved up significantly from several months ago, where prices from this time period were used to set the level of the upcoming Winter price cap).
I love it when people say back in the olden days we were all happy. We had no central heating and the inside of our windows used to freeze up with ice. We had to use hotwater bottles and extra blankets and when we got up in the morning we used to hold our hands under our chins and shiver like bad men until the fire was lit.
I cant do all that shit again ...truly I cant : (
