LONDON, Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Soaring gas prices have sent shock waves through the British economy over the past months, putting up inflation and causing a cost-of-living crisis.

As changes in the wholesale prices are forced upon consumers, households and low-income ones in particular are feeling the budget crunch for something as crucial as energy.
