On Monday's Money Box Live, Vincent Duggleby took your questions about fuel bills and energy and put them to a panel of expert guests.

Energy prices in the UK have increased twice as fast as the European Union average, according to latest figures.

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development statistics showed gas and electricity bills rose 29.7% in the past year compared with 15% in the EU.

In September, Gordon Brown agreed a 910m package of measures with the big energy companies aimed at helping people with soaring gas and electricity bills.

Do you feel you are paying too much for your energy?

Could you benefit from cheaper bills by switching supplier?

Or perhaps you would like to know if you should fix your price.

Are you looking for advice on the cheapest deal - maybe you are considering getting a prepayment meter?

Might you be eligible for a grant to help you keep your home warm?

Or would you like advice about generating your own electricity or how to make your house more energy efficient?

Whatever your concern, our panel of experts were here to give you advice.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

• Joe Malinowski,

• Ann Robinson, U-Switch

• Rob Bell, Energy Saving Trust

Presenter: Vincent Duggleby
Producer: Martin Bedford
