Melbourne Is Paying “Unusually High” Prices For Electricity And Gas

Victorians are paying, on average, 21 per cent more than they need to for electricity and gas.

Government research found prices in Australia were "unusually high" compared to elsewhere in Australia, saying there was "evidence of market failure".

It found the "retailer charge" — costs, marketing and profit — typically makes up 30 per cent of a household electricity bill, more than producing or distributing electricity.
