Best to research offers and find savings before switching off gas

The public body established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) is waiting for the full findings of an independent report into the country's electricity market by chief scientist Alan Finkel, before making recommendations to consumers on the best longer-term approach to managing household energy use.

"Short-term reaction would not be in their best interest," Ms Sinclair said.
