There's a campaign in the UK to fight soaring fuel bills by refusing to pay them. You can sign up here:

dontpay.uk/

The plan is:

Get a 1,000,000 pledges

If we get to 1M pledges, that's leverage to get the gas companies and the government to do something

If they don't do anything, we cancel our direct debits on 1 Oct 2022

The campaign is modelled on the successful refusal to pay the Poll Tax in the '80s and '90s. That campaign worked. So could this!

Whether you can afford the energy price hikes or not, taking part has the potential to benefit you, your neighbours, everyone (except the profiteering energy companies). If there aren't enough pledges, no one has to do anything. If we get enough, we'll win. So, what have you got to lose?

(To avoid confusion, I said 'we' here, because I've pledged to take part. I had nothing to do with creating the campaign!)
