SUPERMARKET giants such as Tesco and Asda are being urged by the Government to sell cheap gas and electricity.
Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has called on the stores to enter the energy market to drive down bills. His plea came just days after the Mirror revealed that David Cameron was under fire for breaking an election promise to tackle soaring prices. Ministers were slammed for “sitting on their hands” after the Big Six energy firms revealed huge price increases. But Mr Huhne said: “I would welcome any move by Tesco to sell energy. It sells petrol and loft insulation, so it’s a natural step.”
